Looking for Poetry to write a Romantic Lied.

Good evening fellow musicians, I'm opening this discussion asking for help, hoping that this is the right subforum to post in.
I am looking for poetry (German) to write a lied to, the problem is, I'm pretty ignorant and my online search attempts didn't find anything useful... I'm looking for very melancholic and desperate Lyrics, not too modern tho..(For example I really like the lyrics in Mahler's Kindertotenlieder)
