Friedrich Schiller Poems
The Forum Of Woman
Woman, never judge man by his individual actions;
But upon man as a whole, pass thy decisive decree.
Could I from this valley drear,
Where the mist hangs heavily,
Soar to some more blissful sphere,
Ah! how happy should I be!
Distant hills enchant my sight,
Ever young and ever fair;
To those hills I'd take my flight
Had I wings to scale the air.
