HEINRICH HEINE

"Ein Fichtenbaum steht einsam"


A lonely pine is standing
    In the North where high winds blow.
He sleeps; and the whitest blanket
    wraps him in ice and snow.

He dreams—dreams of a palm-tree
    that far in an Orient land
Languishes, lonely and drooping,
    Upon the burning sand.
