From Heine's In a Foreign Land in New Poems
I once had a beautiful fatherland. The oak tree was so tall; the violets nodded gently. It was a dream.
I was kissed and spoken to in German (one hardly believes how good it sounded): "I love you!" It was a dream. -- From In a Foreign Land in New Poems, 1844
