E'en As A lovely Flower by Heinrich Heine

E'en As A lovely Flower
Heinrich Heine

E'en as a lovely flower,
So fair, so pure thou art;
I gaze on thee, and sadness
Comes stealing o'er my heart.

My hands I fain had folded
Upon thy soft brown hair,
Praying that God may keep thee
So lovely, pure and fair.
