Do Thou Love, Too!
By Johanna Ambrosius (1854–1939)
 
THE WAVES they whisper
  In Luna’s glance,
Entrancing music
  For the nixies’ dance.
They beckon, smiling,        5
  And wavewise woo,
While softly plashing:—
  “Do thou love, too!”
 
In blossoming lindens
  Doves fondly rear        10
Their tender fledglings
  From year to year.
With never a pausing,
  They bill and coo,
And twitter gently:—        15
  “Do thou love, too!”
