C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Pine and Palm
By Heinrich Heine (1797–1856)
 
From ‘Poems and Ballads’: Translation of Emma Lazarus

THERE stands a lonely pine-tree
  In the north, on a barren height;
He sleep while the ice and snowflakes
  Swathe him in folds of white.
 
He dreameth of a palm-tree        5
  Far in the sunrise land,
Lonely and silent longing
  On her burning bank of sand.
