    • 1844, Felix Mendelssohn, Hör' mein Bitten (with literal translation):
      O könnt' ich fliegen wie Tauben dahin,
      weit hinweg vor dem Feinde zu fliehn!
      In die Wüste eilt' ich dann fort,
      fände Ruhe am schattigen Ort.
      Oh, if I could fly off like the doves,
      flee far away from the foe!
      Into the wilderness I would then hasten,
      and find repose in a shadowy place.
