An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
A Mother’s Grave
By Johann Ludwig Uhland (1787–1862)
 
Translation of Frederick William Ricord

A GRAVE, O mother, has been dug for thee
    Within a still—to thee a well-known—place.
A shadow all its own above shall be,
    And flowers its threshold too shall ever grace.
 
And even as thou died’st, so in thy urn        5
    Thou’lt lie unconscious of both joy and smart:
And daily to my thought shalt thou return;
    I dig for thee this grave within my heart.
