Heinrich Heine (1797–1856)
 
Translated by C. G. Leland

IN the market-place of Halle
  There stand two mighty lions:
O thou lion-pride of Halle,
  How greatly art thou tamed!
 
In the market-place of Halle        5
  There stands a mighty giant;
He hath a sword, yet never stirs,—
  He ’s petrified with terror.
 
In the market-place of Halle
  A mighty church is standing,        10
Where the Burschenschaft and the Landsmannschaft
  Have plenty of room for praying.
