Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
German court official,
theatre director, novelist, scientist,
poet and dramatist,
died 22nd March 1832.
Born with the power to watch and to see,
At home in my tower, this world pleases me.
I perceive things afar and I view what is near,
The moon and each star, the woods and the deer.
What I find in all these is a beauty innate;
Where everything pleases, I'm pleased with my fate.
These eyes have been lucky in all they have seen,
Whatever the ending, how grand it has been!
Spring Equinox in Colstey Woods.
