Of Pearls and Stars
by Heinrich  Heine

The pearly treasures of the sea,
The lights that spatter heaven above,
More precious than these wonders are
My heart-of-hearts filled with your love.

The ocean's power, the heavenly sights
Cannot outweigh a love filled heart.
And sparkling stars or glowing pearls
Pale as love flashes, beams and darts.

So, little, youthful maiden come
Into my ample, feverish heart 
For heaven and earth and sea and sky
Do melt as love hath melt my heart.


(translated by David Doggett, 2002)
