Niederrhein Brucke crossing the Rhine River in Wesel, North-Rhine Wesphalia (Germany)

 I cannot divine what it meaneth,
This haunting nameless pain: 
A tale of the bygone ages 
Keeps brooding through my brain:
The faint air cools in the gloaming,
And peaceful flows the Rhine, 
The thirsty summits are drinking 
The sunset's flooding wine;

Fragment from the poem Lorelei,
Heinrich Heine translated by Mark Twain
