First Line: Hill and castle fair are glancing
Last Line: Kind and gentle can she seem.
Subject(s): Rhine (river), Europe

HILL and castle fair are glancing
O'er the clear and glassy Rhine,
And my bark is gaily dancing
In the sunlight all-divine.

On the golden waters, breaking
Sportively, my calm eyes rest;
Gently are the feelings waking
That I nourish'd in my breast.

With a fond and kindly greeting,
Lure me those deep waters bright,
Yet I know their smoothness cheating
Hides beneath it death and night.

Joy above, below destruction, --
Thou'rt my loved one's image, stream!
Blissful is her smile's seduction,
Kind and gentle can she seem.
