C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Katharina
By Heinrich Heine (1797–1856)
 
Translation of Charles Harvey Genung

A LUSTROUS star has risen on my night,
A star which beams sweet comfort from its light,
And brightens all my earthly lot;
            Deceive me not!
 
Like as still moonward swells the heaving sea,        5
So swells and flows my soul, so wild and free,
Aloft to that resplendent spot,—
            Deceive me not!
