  10. 10. TO THE FLOWERS OF HEIDELBERGGo to my country, go, O foreign flowers, sown by the traveler along the road, and under that blue heaven that watches over my loved ones, recount the devotion the pilgrim nurses for his native sod! Go and say say that when dawn opened your chalices for the first time beside the icy Neckar, you saw him silent beside you, thinking of her constant vernal clime.
  11. 11. TO THE FLOWERS OF HEIDELBERG Say that when dawn which steals your aromawas whispering playful love songs to your young sweet petals, he, too, murmured canticles of love in his native tongue; that in the morning when the sun first traces the topmost peak of Koenigssthul in gold and with a mild warmth raises to life again the valley, the glade, the forest, he hails that sun, still in its dawning, that in his country in full zenith blazes.
  12. 12. TO THE FLOWERS OF HEIDELBERG And tell of that day when he collected you along the way among the ruins of a feudal castle,on the banks of the Neckar, or in a forest nook. Recount the words he said as, with great care, between the pages of a worn-out book he pressed the flexible petals that he took.
  13. 13. TO THE FLOWERS OF HEIDELBERG Carry, carry, O flowers, my love to my loved ones, peace to my country and its fecund loam, faith to its men and virtue to its women, health to the gracious beings that dwell within the sacred paternal home. When you reach that shore, deposit the kiss I gave you on the wings of the wind above that with the wind it may roveand I may kiss all that I worship, honor and love!
  14. 14. TO THE FLOWERS OF HEIDELBERG But O you will arrive there, flowers, and you will keep perhaps your vivid hues; but far from your native heroic earth to which you owe your life and worth, your fragrances you will lose!For fragrance is a spirit that never can forsake and never forgets the sky that saw its birth.
