Unpublished poem by the Danish writer Emil Aarestrup (1800-56)


Du var den fine Rose

Du var den fine Rose,
Blegrød i Sommerluften,
Og jeg var Atmosphæren,
Som fyldte sig med Duften.


You were the rose in flower

You were the rose in flower,
Pale-red in summer’s radiance,
And I the air around you
That filled itself with fragrance.
