Little Miss Splendid

Remembrance of Things Past, Seize the Day, and In Search of Beauty and Joy

Great German Poet – Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) April 17, 2010

Thou fairest fisher maiden,
Row thy boat to the land.
Come here and sit beside me,
Whispering, hand in hand.
Lay thy head on my bosom,
And have no fear of me ;
For carelessly thou trustest
Daily the savage sea.
My heart is like the ocean,
With storm and ebb and flow,
And many a pearl lies hidden
Within its depths below.
