Hermann Hesse Night Poems

  • 1.
    Graceful, spiritual,
    with the gentleness of arabesques
    our life is similar
    to the existence of fairies
  • 2.
    My Pillow gazes upon me at night
    Empty as a gravestone;
    I never thought it would be so bitter
    To be alone,
  • 3.

  • 4.
    You brothers, who are mine,
    Poor people, near and far,
    Longing for every star,
    Dream of relief from pain,
  • 5.
    Don't be downcast, soon the night will come,
    When we can see the cool moon laughing in secret
    Over the faint countryside,
    And we rest, hand in hand.
  • 6.
    Only on me, the lonely one,
    The unending stars of the night shine,
    The stone fountain whispers its magic song,
    To me alone, to me the lonely one
  • 7.
    Many thousand glittering motes
    Crowd forward greedily together
    In trembling circles.
    Extravagantly carousing away
  • 8.
    In this evil year, autumn comes early...
    I walk by night in the field, alone, the rain clatters,
    The wind on my hat...And you? And you, my friend?

  • 9.
    I walk so often, late, along the streets,
    Lower my gaze, and hurry, full of dread,
    Suddenly, silently, you still might rise
    And I would have to gaze on all your grief

Isaac Watts Poem
Psalm 115
 by Isaac Watts

The true God our refuge; or, Idolatry reproved.

Not to ourselves, who are but dust,
Not to ourselves is glory due,
Eternal God, thou only just,
Thou only gracious, wise, and true.

Shine forth in all thy dreadful name;
