Am Winterwehr


Reißend fällt es in die weißen Schneisen,
Als ränne nirgends mehr ein Bach so rauh,
An kahlen Weiden seine Kraft zu eisen
Und aufzuschäumen, kalt und ungenau.

Der trauernd bleiche, blank verfangne Tau

Ganz braust der Schwall des Wassers auf am Rande,
Halb hämmernd, hoch, halb hallend, grad wie Glas,

In Klängen aus Geästen irgendwo,
Die Kälte klären … Antwort, dann Tableau -

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
