So I fancy my Muse says, when I wish to die,
Oh no, Oh no, we are not yet friends enough,
And Virtue also says:
We are not yet friends enough.
Yet a time may come when a poet or any person Having a long life behind him, pleasure and sorrow... May fancy life comes to him with love and says: We are friends enough now for me to give you death; Then he may commit suicide, then He may go.
Into the dark night Resignedly I go, I am not so afraid of the dark night As the friends I do not know, I do not fear the night above As I fear the friends below.
I long for the Person from Porlock
To bring my thoughts to an end,
I am growing impatient to see him
I think of him as a friend.
