Ginkgo poem by J.W. von Goethe

GeĆ¼pload door elodie-colin. -

The famous poem "Gin(k)go biloba" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe presented by EloDie CoLin in this wonderful video.
On my website I write:
"Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The German poet, scientist, botanist and philosopher, dedicated this poem to his former lover Marianne von Willemer. The Ginkgo leaf symbolizes Goethe's theme, one and double. The Ginkgo tree that was Goethe's inspiration to write the poem in 1815, grew in Heidelberg, Germany. This poem was published in Goethe's work 'West-ƶstlichen Divan' (book Suleika) of 1819, titled 'Gingo biloba' for literally reasons."
