Margarete Münsterberg, ed., trans.  A Harvest of German Verse.  1916.
 
Fir-tree
By Heinrich Heine (1799–1856)
 
A FIR-TREE stands so lonely
On barren northern height.
Drowsy it grows; the snowdrift
Has wrought it a mantle white.
 
It dreams of a distant palm-tree,        5
That in some eastern land
Alone, in silence mourning,
On a burning cliff must stand.
