Margarete Münsterberg, ed., trans.  A Harvest of German Verse.  1916.
 
Found
By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832)
 
I WANDERED lonely
Beneath the trees,
And sought for nothing,
But strolled at ease.
 
There in the shadows        5
A flower grew,
Like starlight beaming,
Like eyes so blue.
 
I sought to break it,
But heard it say:        10
“Shall I be broken
To fade away?”
 
I dug it out then
With roots and all,
And bore it home to        15
My garden small.
 
Again it’s planted
And finds repose;
And now as ever
It blooms and grows.        20
