XXXII. Visions
By Heinrich Heine (1797–1856)
Translated by Emma Lazarus

IN the dreamy wood I wander,
  In the wood at eventide;
And thy slender graceful figure
  Wanders ever by my side.
Is not this thy white veil floating,        5
  Is not that thy gentle face?
Is it but the moonlight breaking
  Through the dark fir branches’ space?
Can these tears so softly flowing
  Be my very own I hear?        10
Or indeed, art thou beside me,
  Weeping, darling, close anear?
