The sea is grey, the shore is grey,
And lonely lies the town;
The sea-mist never rolls away;
The sea-waves only, night and day,
Are heard around the town.
No rustling forest stands a-nigh;
You hear no spring birds call;
On autumn nights the harsh, wild cry
Of wild swans only, flying by;
The grass waves rank and tall.
My feet are set in far-off ways,
My heart still clings to thee!
The memory sweet of boyhood’s days
For ever round thee smiling plays,
O grey town by the sea!
Theodor Storm, 1852
Translation by Helena C. Frank, 1911
