Excerpt from the poem for the 1859 with 22 years queen of Portugal, died (Princess Stephanie von Hohenzollern Sigmaringen):

It pulls 0, which mourning customer by the country of that
city on the sea, „! Dully/mustily and heavily
where the Tajo last waves strike broadly,
the complaint sounds,the Thräne flows there:
Home-gone there from Portugal
the young queen is in recent days!
Where it sank so early from the throne,
there becomes a marble stehn Lisbon,
dull/musty rings bells, darkly burns candles -
we put it up a quiet monument,
thatwonderful lasts by the years run -
a dear monument is 's in faithful hearts! “
