Hannah Magdalena Bach

If not weariness in my breath this be, 
then what? 
What subtle lash's trembling hath set me aflame? 
What hand a flutter 
that touching lightly mine does feel of rain? 
And whence are these birds so chirping, 
but never seen at all? 

More elegant are your careful words, 
wet with wine and I am aflutter
