Faithful Eckart

Poem By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Do not forget me
I am in your veins
and in your blood
your heart beats
in between mine
do not forget me
I will always be there
even when your walls are too high
to climb
I will wait on the other side
and when you return
my arms will be opened wide

After-Sensations

WHEN the vine again is blowing,
Then the wine moves in the cask;
When the rose again is glowing,
Wherefore should I feel oppress'd?

April

Eyes tell, tell me, what you tell me,
telling something all too sweet,
making music out of beauty,
with a question hidden deep.

A Parable

I PICKED a rustic nosegay lately,
And bore it homewards, musing greatly;
When, heated by my hand, I found
The heads all drooping tow'rd the ground.

Ballad Of The Banished And Returning Count

OH, enter old minstrel, thou time-honour'd one!
We children are here in the hall all alone,

The portals we straightway will bar.

Blindman's Buff

OH, my Theresa dear!
Thine eyes, I greatly fear,

Can through the bandage see!

A Legacy

No living atom comes at last to naught!
Active in each is still the eternal Thought:
Hold fast to Being if thou wouldst be blest.
