Ich sah in Louisiana eine immergrĂŒne Eiche wachsen, Ganz allein stand sie, und Moos hing von den Zweigen nieder, Ohne einen einzigen GefĂ€hrten wuchs sie dort, Fröhliche BlĂ€tter treibend von dunklem GrĂŒn, Und ihr Bild, rauh, und unbeugsam und lustvoll, ließ mich an mich selber denken, Doch ich wunderte mich, wie sie, allein hier stehend, Fröhliche BlĂ€tter trieben konnte, ohne einen nahen Freund, denn ich wußte, ich könnte es nicht.

Oder Zeit und Raum; Oder Gestalt der göttlichen, wundersamen Erde; Oder sonst irgendeine herrliche Gestalt, die ich sehe und verehre; O du strahlender Sonnenball, oder ihr Nachtgestirne: Seid meine Götter! My chair rock-rocks by the door all day But nobody ever stops my way, Nobody ever stops my way. Dies ist das Land, das der Sonnenuntergang badet, Dies sind die Ufer des Gelben Meeres; Wo es entstand, und wohin es entströmt, Hier liegt des Westens Mysterium!
