James Joyce

(2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941 / Dublin / Ireland)

Bahnhofstrasse


The eyes that mock me sign the way
Whereto I pass at eve of day.

Grey way whose violet signals are
The trysting and the twining star.

Ah star of evil! star of pain!
Highhearted youth comes not again

Nor old heart's wisdom yet to know
The signs that mock me as I go.

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
