Børnenes Sang Til Storken

— Bernhard Severin Ingemann

Stork! Stork! Langebeen!
Hvor var du saa længe?
Saae du Kong Pharaos høie Steen?
Gik du paa Nilstrømmens Enge?

Stork! Stork! Langebeen!
Med de røde Hoser!
Hvor har du gjort af dit ene Been?
Blev det i Pharaos Moser?

Stork! Stork! Langebeen!
Lykken vil du bringe:
Gjemmer du den med dit ene Been
Listelig under din Vinge?

Stork! Stork! favre Smaa
Bringer du vor Moder:
Er det en Søster med Øine blaae?
Eller en lille Kjærbroder?
