Ingeborg Bachmann Night Poems

  • 1.
    In the zunsheen of our zummers
    Wi' the hay time now a-come,
    How busy wer we out a-vield
    Wi' vew a-left at hwome,

    When I led by zummer streams
    The pride o' Lea, as naighbours thought her,
    While the zun, wi' evenen beams,
    Did cast our sheades athirt the water;
  • 3.
    Do not decree faith on this race,
    stars, ships and smoke are enough;
    it is concerned with things, determines
    stars and mathematical infinity,
  • 4.
    Wherever we turn in the storm of roses,
    the night is lit up by thorns, and the thunder
    of leaves, once so quiet within the bushes,
    rumbling at our heels.

    More beatiful than the remarkable moon and her noble light,
    More beautiful than the stars, the famous medals of the night,
    More beautiful than the fiery entrance a comet makes,
    And called to a part far more splendid than any other planet's
  • 6.

    Be silent with me, as all bells are silent!

Emily Dickinson Poem
How happy I was if I could forget
 by Emily Dickinson


How happy I was if I could forget
To remember how sad I am
Would be an easy adversity
But the recollecting of Bloom

Keeps making November difficult
