Svarta rosor

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Rostbruna, dunkelröda, halft förbrända
de glöda midt i sommarens rikedom.
Tärda af lidelsens smärta, förkolnade
i sitt hjärta, märkta af ödets tunga dom:
"Tristi amori, tristi amori, amori."

Ute i sol och sommar lifvet och lyckan blommar,
glädjerosor doftande stå!
Ensamma, dunkla öden skapade
att i glöden blott af sin egen eld förgå:
"Tristi amori, tristi amori, amori."

Plocka dem icke i lystnad! Gå dem förbi i tystnad;
grym är ödets och kärlekens magt.
Ingen dess sår får röra,
ingen dess smärta störa skuggan i sommarens rosenprakt:
"Tristi amori, tristi amori, amori."

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
