Ah, your pure white lily-fingers

Text by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)

Ah, your pure white lily-fingers,
I wish to kiss one more time,
And, pressing them agaist my heart,
Thereafter die, in silent weeping!

Those clear violet eyes of yours
Hover before me, day and night,
And I ponder over how
To solve those sweet blue riddles.
