by Gertrud Emily Borngräber, née von Schlieben (1873 - 1939), as Gerda von Robertus

Kythere
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Der Rosen Düfte liebeatmend
schwingen in weichen Wellen,
die wie Brüste beben, sich zu uns
über purpurblaue Meere.
Ganz ferne, feiner Äolsharfen klingen.

Die Barke, Liebster, lenk und lass uns streben
gen Aphrodites Inselreich: Kythere.
