Ingeborg Bachmann Time Poems

  • 1.
    Last Easter Jim put on his blue
    Frock cwoat, the vu'st time-vier new;
    Wi' yollow buttons all o' brass,
    That glitter'd in the zun lik' glass;
  • 2.
    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,
  • 3.
    That summer there was no honey.
    The queens led their swarms away,
    the strawberry bed dried up in a day,
    the berrypickers went home early.
  • 4.

    Be silent with me, as all bells are silent!

  • 5.
    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,
  • 6.
    Harder days are coming.
    The loan of borrowed time
    will be due on the horizon.
    Soon you must lace up your boots

Poem of the day

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

1. Is it the wind of the dawn that I hear
in the pine overhead?
2. No; but the voice of the deep as it hollows
the cliffs of the land.
1. Is there a voice coming up with the
voice of the deep from the strand,
Once coming up with a Song in the
flush of the glimmering red?
