The Rock with Runes
By Heinrich Heine (1799–1856)
THERE looms in the sea the rock with runes—
I sit with my memory roaming.
The wind and the seagulls shriek their tunes,
The waves are wandering and foaming.
I loved—ah, many a dearest child,        5
And many a comrade yonder!
Where are they gone? The wind is wild,
The waves—they foam and wander.
