Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

(28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832 / Frankfurt am Main)

Apparent Death


WEEP, maiden, weep here o'er the tomb of Love;

He died of nothing--by mere chance was slain.
But is he really dead?--oh, that I cannot prove:

A nothing, a mere chance, oft gives him life again.

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
