It's Been Such A Long Time

Postby MonroeDoctrine » Tue Feb 05, 2013 5:29 am

I Haven't Posted Much In Ages However I wanted to share my discovery of Some Awesome Poems by Heinrich Heine. The man is a genius.

Meine Qual und Meine Klagen

All my anguish, all my rages,
I have poured and nought concealed here;
And, if you should turn these pages,
You will find my heart revealed here.

Wenn Junge Herzen brechen

When young hearts break with passion
The stars break into laughter,
They laugh and, in their fashion,
Gossip a long time after:

"Poor souls, those mortals languish
With Love; 'tis all they cherish.
It pays them back with anguish
And pain until they perish.

"We never can discover
This love, so brief and breathless,
So fatal to each lover----
And hence we stars are deathless."

Wenn ich in deine Augen seh

Whene'er I gaze into thine eyes
Then all my grief and sorrow flies;
And when I kiss thy mouth, oh then
I am made well and strong again.

And when I lean upon thy breast
My soul is soothed with godlike rest;
But when thou sayest, " I love but thee!"
Then I must weep---and bitterly.

Welcome back MD! but the "Where's the the poet..." section is still for one's own work, so I have moved this to the miscellaneous section; I hope you don't mind.
"Oh what a misery it is to have an intellect in splints".
