THE SAME

THE SAME

[Written at night on the Kickelhahn, a hill
In the forest of Ilmenau, on the walls of a little hermitage where
Goethe composed the last act of his Iphigenia.]

HUSH’D on the hill

Is the breeze;

Scarce by the zephyr

The trees

Softly are press’d;
The woodbird’s asleep on the bough.
Wait, then, and thou

Soon wilt find rest.

1783.



Poem THE SAME - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
