Text by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)
Translated into English by Joseph Massaad
deutsch - franšais
thither, I'm driven along!
Yet in a few hours, I shall be seeing
Herself, of all maids, the fairest in being;
True heart, why are you throbbing so strong?
The hours are such a laggard race!
My spirit is chased by the fiercest unrest!
