Bloom Dream - Blütentraum


May-bloom, thou were winding oleander -

Moonlight drops on park behind the pines,
How palace's jasper's glamour seems so pale,
Pallid Jasmines flat till to the shores.

Barks unload from foreign countries cargos.

Inns' noise signifies the mornings' whores,
Fragrance of all earth lies like the harbour
In the early landing light oft moon -

I sank, at rose-balustrades still supported!


Blütentraum
(in German)

Maiblüte, du bewehtest Oleander -

Mondlicht hinter Pinien fällt zum Park,
Wie des Palastes Jaspisabglanz fahl,
Milchig flaut Jasmin an die Gestade.

Aus Ländern löschen Schiffe fremde Fracht.

Lärmspelunken deuten Morgendirnen.
Wie Duft der Kontinente liegt der Hafen
In des Monds anlegend frühem Schein -

Ich sank, noch ans Spalier der Rosen gestützt!

    Not too sure why you translate already translated poetry that has been published by recognised academics, There
    are strange neologisms here that don`t work in German.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
