Margarete Münsterberg, ed., trans.  A Harvest of German Verse.  1916.
 
Thou Seemest Like a Flower
By Heinrich Heine (1799–1856)
 
THOU seemest like a flower,
So fair and pure thou art;
I look on thee and sadness
Comes stealing through my heart.
 
And now I feel like resting        5
My hands upon thy hair,
Praying that God may keep thee
So lovely, pure and fair.
