Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...love's esteem, And lips in kiss while cooing, 'Tis then my heart craves love divine, The image of my holy shrine. At even tide, When angel thoughts around me hover, And greet my soul in love's embrace, I feel that I am still a lover Of that true heart and smiling face That always was and e'er shall be The angel queen of love to me. GARDA SEE Blue Garda See, I bow to thee In homage and in praise; A priceless pearl thou'lt ever be, A turquoise in image, That in Imperial Kaiser's crown Shone out with luster and renown. Thou wert a boon that all did crave From emperor to king, And o'er thy beauty all did rave, And bards their praises sing; The poets made of thee a shrine, And worshiped thee as if divine. Through all the turmoil, war and snare, None could thy beauty mar, For thou were ever in God's care, Who like a brilliant star Watched o'er thee while thou wert asleep, In rock-bound cradle, strong and deep. The towering mountains 'round thee stand Like sentinels to see That thou art nurtured from their hand By streams they send to thee, From snowy peaks in silv'ry rill, That joyfully thy measure fill. The sun at its meridian height Greets thee by day with love, While silvery moon and stars by night Smile on thee from above, And signorinas sing lago From gentle gliding gondola. All bliss, fair queen of lakes, is thine To reign majestically, And float thy flag of blue divine In rippling ecstacy, And all in praise must pay tribute And thy majestic throne salute. MONTREUX, SWITZERLAND (Written in an Album.) Die Welt ist doch ein Paradies Und schoen darin zu leben Blumen, Musick, Lieb sind suess Die Sie mir hier gegeben. Stets halt' ich diesen Ort in Ehr' Fuer Freuden hier genossen Und mein froh' Herz wird nimmer mehr In Lieb zu Ihn geschlossen. LAKE...show more
