Poe, Edgar Allan: An - (Ich acht nicht) (To - (I heed not that) in German)

Portre of Poe, Edgar Allan

To - (I heed not that) (English)

I heed not that my earthly lot
Hath – little of Earth in it –
That years of love have been forgot
In the hatred of a minute: –
I mourn not that the desolate
Are happier, sweet, than I,
But that you sorrow for my fate
Who am a passer by.

An - (Ich acht nicht) (German)

Ich acht nicht, dass mein Erdenlos
            Nur wenig Weltlauf kannte, –
Dass kurzer Hass, der mich durchfloss,
            Die lange Liebe bannte: –
Ich jammer nicht, dass, die in Not,
            Viel froher sind als ich,
Ich daure dich, nur dies ich hoff,
            Der sich vorbei nur schlich.
