Brooke wrote this poem in Berlin, 1912 an uncomfortable place to be, one might think, no wonder he was so homesick. Brooke wrote what are now considered as war poems but he died of an infection before the First World War, and the poems express his feelings not his experiences. Later he lost popularity because of comparisons with Wilfred Owen and Seigfried Sassoon - but it was hardly his fault. He was a pre-war poet.

"Betreten verboten" means no trespassing.

"ei' qe genoi mhn" just means "I wish I were..." - at least I think so .
