Ingeborg Bachmann Night Poems

    In the zunsheen of our zummers
    Wi' the hay time now a-come,

    Do not decree faith on this race,
    stars, ships and smoke are enough;

    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!

Shine forth in all thy dreadful name;
