Waldeinsamkeit - alone in the forest

'Woman in a Wood' by Adolf Hölzel (1853-1934)

 What is 'waldeinsamkeit'...simply to be
alone in the forest (...or at least we think so...). 
It is the feeling of being alone in the woods, but it also hints at 
a connectedness to nature. The solitude of wilderness as 
a motif is prevalent in both religion and the literature 
of German Romanticism (1800-50)

'Waldeinsamkeit'  by Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853)

Die mich erfreut,
So morgen wie heut
In ewger Zeit,
O wie mich freut

Forest solitude
Delights me
Tomorrow and today alike,
For all eternity.
Oh how forest solitude
pleases me
