Ich habe mich selber belächelt…

Я сам над собой насмеялся…

Ich habe mich selber belächelt,
Verübte an mir Selbstbetrug,
Als ich mir vorstellen konnte,
Es gäb etwas andres, als dich.

Du, Weiße, in Kleidern, weiß-leuchtend,
Wie Göttinnen, strahlend, antik,
Hältst du die kristallene Sphäre
In Händen, die durchsichtig, fein.

Und alle die Meere, die Berge,
Die Erzengel, Blumen, der Mensch –
Sie spiegeln kristallen sich wider
In Jungfrauenaugen, so klar.

Wie seltsam, zu denken, es gäbe
Hier noch etwas andres, als dich
Und daß ich selber nicht nächtlich
Ein Lied, traumlos, wär, über dich.

Über den Schultern ein Leuchten,
Hinter dir blendendes Licht,
Denn Feuersäulen schweben,
Die golden, ein Flügelpaar, sind.

The ship

"What d' you see in my eyes, slightly sparkling, / In my look, hazed with opaque mist?" / "There I saw the sea's deepest darkness / With a big sunken beautiful ship. / / That fine ship... More glorious and braver / None had seen over deep of the sea. / Its high masts under windbreath ...

A fragment of «Tale of Kings»

Once a dark horseman oh a black horse came / He was clad in a black velvet cloak, full of pride. / And his look was so dreadful, as a town aflame, / And so glaring as a flash in the night. / / Curly hair upon shoulders like serpents did twist, / And his voice was a song of the earth and...

Giraffe

Today, I can see that your glance is especially sad, / And hands are especially thin and the hair if up fluff. / Hey, listen, as far as in Africa, down at lake Chad / Is walking a graceful Giraffe. / / He's owing that elegance, slender and languor he is, / Such beautiful patterns are sh...

The Gates of Paradise

There are no seven diamond seals to close / the eternal gates of God's great paradise / it has no tempting charms, no beckoning glow / and to the people remains unrecognized. / / a doorway in a wall long since forsaken / a mass of stones and moss and nothing more. / nearby, a beggar, ...
