Dream Journeys – Songs of Springtime

Spring

-“Songs of Springtime,” Ludwig Uhland, translated by W.W. Skeat

The briefest recollection of Uhland’s “Spring Song”…was sufficient to show a present-day poet most conclusively that those enchanting things were, for the time being, exhausted as subjects for poetry and that there was no sense in attempting to imitate in any way those inexhaustibly full, blessedly living creations.

Dream Journeys, Hermann Hesse
