Forgotten By The Reaper

But a day must come

when the fire of youth

will be quenched in my veins,

when winter will dwell in my heart,

when his snow flakes will whiten my locks,

and his mists will dim my eyes.

Then my friends will lie in their lonely grave,

and I alone will remain

like a solitary stalk forgotten by the reaper.

~Heinrich Heine, “Ideas: Book Le Grand,” 1826
