Gedächtnisfeier

Rating: 2.4
Not a Mass will be sung then,
Not a Kaddish will be said,
Nothing sung, and nothing spoken,
On the day when I am dead.
But perhaps another day
When the weather’s mild, serene,
My Matilde will go walking,
In Montmartre, with Pauline.
With a wreath of immortelles,
She’ll come to dress my grave,
And she’ll sigh: ‘Oh, poor man.’

seems after the mourning a sad girl with weary feet is best advised to take a romping way in a cab ride; Heine seems obcessed with death in several poems, is this a German melancholy mind?
