Thoughts in a Tranquil Night

Thoughts in a Tranquil Night

Athwart the bed
I watch the moonbeams cast a trail
So bright, so cold, so frail,
That for a space it gleams
Like hoar-frost on the margin of my dreams.
I raise my head,
The splendid moon I see:
Then droop my head,
And sink to dreams of thee
My Fatherland, of thee!
