Born: September 14th, 1817 - Husum, Germany
Died: July 4th, 1888 - Hanerau-Hademarschen, Germany
Clouds gather, treetops toss and sway;
But pour us wine, an old one!
That we may turn this dreary day
To golden; yes, to golden!
- A Song in October
Between the shadows of the earth and the dark depths of the sky, human life lay slumbering, with all its unsolved puzzles.
