Die Nacht, vom wachsenden Sturme bewegt

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Titleblatt
Die Nacht, vom wachsenden Sturme bewegt,
wie wird sie auf einmal weit - ,
als bliebe sie sonst zusammengelegt
in die kleinlichen Falten der Zeit.
Wo die Sterne ihr wehren, dort endet sie nicht
und beginnt nicht mitten im Wald
und nicht an meinem Angesicht
und nicht mit deiner Gestalt.
Die Lampen stammeln und wissen nicht:
lügen wir Licht?
Ist die Nacht die einzige Wirklichkeit
seit Jahrtausenden...

La nuit, agitée par une tempête...

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

  
La nuit, agitée par une tempête grandissante,
comme elle devient tout à coup vaste,
elle qui habituellement reste toute entière
dans les étroits plis du temps.
Elle ne se termine pas là où les étoiles l'arrêtent
et ne commence pas au cœur de la forêt
et pas à mon visage
et pas avec ta silhouette.
Les lampes bégaient et ne savent pas :
« lumière  mentons-nous ? »
La nuit est-elle la seule réalité
depuis des millénaires …
