Ingeborg Bachmann I Love You Poems

  • 1.
    Do not decree faith on this race,
    stars, ships and smoke are enough;
    it is concerned with things, determines
    stars and mathematical infinity,

    The girt woak tree that's in the dell !
    There's noo tree I do love so well;
    Vor times an' times when I wer young
    I there've a-climb'd, an' there've a-zwung,

    Dark-eyed Fanny, now vorseaken;
    There she zot, wi' breast a-heaven,
    While vrom zide to zide, wi' grieven,

    Used together: seasons, books, a piece of music.
    The keys, teacups, bread basket, sheet and a bed.
    A hope chest of words, of gestures, brought back, used, used up.

    If souls should only sheen so bright
    In heaven as in e'thly light,
    An' nothen better wer the cease,
    How comely still, in sheape an' feace,

Poem of the day

Charles Baudelaire Poem
 by Charles Baudelaire

Mère des jeux latins et des voluptés grecques,
Lesbos, où les baisers, languissants ou joyeux,
Chauds comme les soleils, frais comme les pastèques,
Font l'ornement des nuits et des jours glorieux,
Mère des jeux latins et des voluptés grecques,

Lesbos, où les baisers sont comme les cascades
Qui se jettent sans peur dans les gouffres sans fonds
