BY THE RIVER.

Written by: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe | Biography
 | Quotes (340) |
 FLOW on, ye lays so loved, so fair,

On to Oblivion's ocean flow!
May no rapt boy recall you e'er,

No maiden in her beauty's glow!

My love alone was then your theme,

But now she scorns my passion true.
Ye were but written in the stream;

As it flows on, then, flow ye too!

1798.*
