Stiller Freund der vielen Fernen, fühle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Stiller Freund der vielen Fernen, fühle,
wie dein Atem noch den Raum vermehrt.
Im Gebälk der finsteren Glockenstühle
laß dich läuten. Das, was an dir zehrt,

wird ein Starkes über dieser Nahrung.
Geh in der Verwandlung aus und ein.
Was ist deine leidendste Erfahrung?
Ist dir Trinken bitter, werde Wein.

Sei in dieser Nacht aus Übermaß
Zauberkraft am Kreuzweg Deiner Sinne,
ihrer seltsamen Begegnung Sinn.

Und wenn dich das Irdische vergaß,
zu der stillen Erde sag: Ich rinne.
Zu dem raschen Wasser sprich: Ich bin.

Ami silencieux des lointains multiples,...

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Ami silencieux des lointains multiples, sens
comme ton souffle accroît encore l'espace.
Dans la charpente des clochers sombres
laisse-toi résonner. Ce qui te ronge

devient fort par cette nourriture.
Va et viens dans la transformation.
Quelle est ton expérience la plus éprouvante ?
Si boire t'es amer, deviens vin.

Sois dans cette nuit sans limite
la force magique au carrefour des sens,
le sens de leur rencontre surprenante.

Et si les choses terrestres t'oublient,
à la terre immobile dis : Je coule.
Et à l'eau rapide dis : Je suis.
