Rogues in literature

The other, smaller, plump, a nut-brown girl, with Picaresque dimes around the cheeks and laughing Picaresque eyes; how well the wreath of cornflowers, ears and poppies looked like in her hair.

Willibald Alexis: Quiet is the first civic duty or fifty years ago, 1852

Her eyes are blue, her curly hair is dark brown,
A Rogue mouth, as ever was
A moody kid; yet all ‘their reluctance
Conquer her heart, which is so completely devoted to me.

Theodor Storm: Poems. Young love, 1852

Look at me and tell me, rogue eye, rogue mouth!

Gottfried August Bürger: Poems, 1778

Tina closed her eyes, and went on with the very dearest mind game, and lowered the delicate nose of hers Picaresque face in the fresh calyx of fragrant aster.

Clauren, Heinrich: Love and Error, 1827

You sweet, you lovely Rogue face,
And do I want to kiss and hold you
So you resist and resist and do not suffer
And escape laughing and joking.

Adolf Strodtmann: Poems, 1870

With the cheeky, laughing, confident eye and the Rogue around the mouth - the darling of gods and birdsong, the conqueror of the world by reckless grace.
