The Linden Tree
(04 October 1943 / Germany)

The Linden Tree

At the fountain by the gate
a Linden tree stays all alone.
Its shadow gave me sanctuary
for many lovely dreams.

I carved into its rough old skin
many a sweetheart word
wherever in the world I've been
It never was too far.

This is the quick translation of
a favourite German song.
