(13 December 1797 – 17 February 1856 / Dusseldorf)

Ich Hatte Einst

I had a lovely homeland long ago.
The oak trees seemed
So tall there, and the violets blew so sweet.
It was a dream.
It kissed me in German, spoke in German
(You’d scarce believe
How good it sounds) the words: I love you true!’
It was a dream.

a mother tongue may sound sweet, but when the beloved says 'I love you' in any language, it is a beautiful dream
