A daughter has been kidnapped for nine months

"'Tis not for the happy; come, daughter of sorrow,
'Tis here thy sad thoughts are embalm'd in thy tears,
Where, lost in the past, disregarding tomorrow,
There's nothing for hopes and nothing for fears."

(A. Hunter in The wanderer)

Bloemenhuisje

“Sag mir wo die Blumen sind,
wo sind sie geblieben
Sag mir wo die Blumen sind,
was ist geschehen?
Sag mir wo die Blumen sind,
Mädchen pflückten sie geschwind
Wann wird man je verstehen,
wann wird man je verstehen?”

(Marlene Dietrich in Sag mir wo die Blumen sind)

He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife.
'At length I realize,' he said,
