O Song, at home well known to fame, That German hearts hath deeply stirred And long hath made of Scheffel's name A dear and honoured household word,

Go forth in thy first foreign dress, Go forth to Albion's noble land! Will she not greetings kind express, And warmly clasp the stranger's hand?

The Emerald Isle will surely give A welcome neither cold nor faint; For on thy pages still doth live The name of Erin's ancient Saint.

Across the sea my country's shores As Hope's bright star before me rise; Will she not open wide her doors To one who on her heart relies?

Farewell, oh work of vanished hours; When suffering rent my weary heart, Thy breath of fragrant woodland flowers Did life renew, fresh strength impart.

Oh Scheffel! may thy years be long! And may'st thou live to see the time, When this thy genial Schwarzwald song Will find a home in every clime.

Basel , June , 1877.

DEDICATION.

"Who is yonder light haired stranger Who there like a cat is roaming O'er the roof of Don Pagano?" Thus asked many honest burghers, Dwellers on the Isle of Capri, When they from the market turning Looked up at the palm tree and the Low arched roof of moorish fashion... Continue reading book >>
