Moja pieszczotka

Language: Polish (Polszczyzna)

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!

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.
