Littell's Living Age/Volume 139/Issue 1790/"Ein Fichtenbaum steht einsam"

"EIN FICHTENBAUM STEHT EINSAM".

A pine-tree stands alone on
A bare bleak northern height;
The ice and snow they swathe it,
As it sleeps there, all in white.

'Tis dreaming of a palm-tree,
In a far-off Eastern land,
That mourns, alone and silent,
On a ledge of burning sand.

Heine.
