he genuinely adores me


It is true that I have my young king who genuinely adores me.

You cannot form an idea of our relations….

He says he can hardly believe that he really possesses me.

None can read without astonishment, without enchantment,

the letters he writes me.

Text: The composer Richard Wagner writing to Mme. Eliza Wille about the affections of Ludwig II, King of Bavaria, 9 September, 1864
