The Works of J. W. von Goethe/Volume 9/Genial Impulse

GENIAL IMPULSE.

Thus roll I, never taking ease,
My tub, like Saint Diogenes,
Now serious am, now seek to please,
Now love and hate in turns one sees;
The motives now are those, now these;
Now nothings, now realities.
Thus roll I, never taking ease,
My tub, like Saint Diogenes.
