Johann Wolfgang v Goethe

28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832 / Frankfurt am Main

Petition

OH thou sweet maiden fair,
Thou with the raven hair,

Why to the window go?

While gazing down below,
Art standing vainly there?

Oh, if thou stood'st for me,
And lett'st the latch but fly,

How happy should I be!
How soon would I leap high!
