FOR RAINER MARIA RILKE

“ES RAUSCHT JETZT VON JENEN JUNGEN TOTEN ZU DIR”

(RILKE : DUINESER ELEGIEN)

IN THE SHADE OF THE TREMBLING MOON

I MEET  /MADE MY FATE DANCING  TO THE SUN GONE NOW.

I WEEP OUT THE HARVEST OF SOULS

THAT ONCE WHEN STILL YOUNG

LULLABIED ME INTO SWEETEST SURRENDER.

THEY ARE DEAD NOW AND I LOST MY LIFE

I AM STRETCHED OUT COVERING BOTH HEMISPHERES

BUT STILL THEY KEEP ON MOVING ME:

i MAKE LOVE TO THE SKY

ME, A LOST ULYSEES IN THE TIDES

STORMY WEATHERS CLOUD THE OCEAN

DRINKING ME IN.
