POEM OF THE DAY: E’en as a Lovely Flower

by Heinrich Heine (1797 – 1856).

E’en as a Lovely Flower

E’en as a lovely flower,
So fair, so pure thou art;
I gaze on thee, and sadness
Comes stealing o’er my heart.
 
My hands I fain had folded
Upon thy soft brown hair,
Praying that God may keep thee
So lovely, pure and fair.

(transl .  by Kate Freiligrath Kroeker)
