This simple stone directs pale Scotia’s way,
 To pour her sorrows o’er the Poet’s dust.


ADDITIONAL STANZASShe mourns, sweet tuneful youth, thy hapless fate;
 Tho’ all the powers of song thy fancy fired,
Yet Luxury and Wealth lay by in state,
 And, thankless, starv’d what they so much admired.

 A brother Bard-he can no more bestow:
But dear to fame thy Song immortal lives,
 A nobler monument than Art ca...Read More

Thy flowery Southland fair,

...ack in, chewing the stalks as they go.

Bridges leap over the train with increasing frequency.

At each stop an additional story grows
onto the roofs. Finally houses with squares
and dots of windows rise up. No matter how far
you throw back your head, there are no tops.

Time and again, the telegraph poles are made
of wood. Maybe it only seems that way.

In the narrow canyons between the buildings, a sort
of adventurer-wind howls and runs away

...witnessed by Captain Babby of the ship "Carline,"
Who most fortunately arrived in the nick of time. 

And fourteen additional human beings were saved from the "Kent,"
And they thanked Captain Babby and God, who to them succour sent,
And had saved them from being burnt, and drowned in the briny deep;
And they felt so overjoyed that some of them did weep;

but faint representation, was written when Goethe was only sixteen 
years old. It derives additional interest from the fact of its being 
the very earliest piece of his that is preserved. The few other 
pieces included by Goethe under the title of Religion and Church 
are polemical, and devoid of interest to the English reader.]

—Gathering these hints, these preludes—the blue sky, the grass, the morning
