Inspired by the fabulous composition by Schubert based on a poem by German poet Matthias Claudius. Here it is in English:

Pass me by! Oh, pass me by!
Go, fierce man of bones!
I am still young! Go, rather,
And do not touch me.
And do not touch me.

Give me your hand, you beautiful and tender form!
I am a friend, and come not to punish.
Be of good cheer! I am not fierce,
Softly shall you sleep in my arms!"

This piece was drawn with graphite, painted with watercolor and enhanced in Photoshop.
