- GER German (Deutsch) (Linda Godry) , "Der Seeadler", copyright © 2008, (re)printed on this website with kind permission
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
