Moja pieszczotka

Language: Polish

Moja pieszczotka, gdy w wesołej chwili
Pocznie szczebiotać i kwilić, i gruchać,
Tak mile grucha, szczebioce i kwili,
Że nie chcąc słówka żadnego postradać
Nie śmiem przerywać, nie śmiem, nie śmiem odpowiadać
I tylko chciałbym słuchać!

Lecz mowy żywość gdy oczki zapali
I pocznie mocniej jagody różować,
Perłowe ząbki błysną śród korali;
Ach! wtenczas, wienczas śmielej woczęta, woczęta poglądam,
Usta pomykam i słuchać nie żądam,
Tylko całować, całować, całować!
