Transcript of Heinrich Heine

I know an old, old story ;

Sad is the sound thereof :
A knight lies worn and wounded

With grief for a faithless love.

He knows her faithless and scorns her

Yet hangs on her wretchedly;
He knows his passion is shameful,

Yet knows it is stronger than he.

He longs to ride to the tourney
And shout with a challenging stir,

" Let him prepare for the death-blow
Who finds a blemish in her ! "

But well he knows there'd be silence

From all save his own unrest;
And his own lance would have to be leveled
