A Palm-Tree
A single fir-tree, lonely,
on a northern mountain height,
sleeps in a white blanket,
draped in snow and ice.
Our death is in the cool of night,
our life is in the pool of day.
The darkness glows, I’m drowning,
the day has tired me with light.
Death And His Brother Sleep (‘morphine’)
There’s a mirror likeness between those two
shining, youthfully-fledged figures, though
one seems paler than the other and more austere,
I might even say more perfect, more distinguished,
From 'To Seraphime'
Through the wood when I am wandering
In the dusky eventide,
Goes a dainty form in silence
I Love This White And Slender Body
I Love this white and slender body,
These limbs that answer Love's caresses,
Passionate eyes, and forehead covered

In 2017 I decided to attempt a Henrich Heine project. To write and dedicate a poem to the first 20 poems on this site by Henrich Heine. It is a style of poetry from the past, I desired to write a contemporary poem, inspired by Heine's theme or themes, to sometimes interact directly with the language style of the original. To pay a quiet tribute to Heine. I extended the project to the first 25 poems.

In 2016 when I first visited these poems by the poet Henrich Heine, his poems had been posted for several years but had almost no comments. This seemed sad, in 1933 in Germany, Heine had been banned and his books burned, for the crime of being Jewish. I decided to read and to leave a comment on all his poems. It seemed right to give Heine a voice, and I wrote and dedicated a few poems to Heine in 2016 and 2017, inspired by his poetry.
