A Palm-Tree

A single fir-tree, lonely,
on a northern mountain height,
sleeps in a white blanket,
draped in snow and ice.

His dreams are of a palm-tree,
who, far in eastern lands,
weeps, all alone and silent,
among the burning sands.

by Heinrich Heine

A nice poem.Visualising the lone palm tree.
A nice poem.Visualising the lone palm tree having a philosophical context.
so simple, direct, and visible.
