Famous Quotes By Gottfried Benn

Gottfried Benn Quotes 849798


Asters - sweltering days

old adjuration/curse,

the gods hold the balance

for an uncertain hour.

Once more the golden flocks

of heaven, the light, the trim -

what is the ancient process

hatching under its dying wings?

Once more the yearned-for,

the intoxication, the rose of you -

summer leaned in the doorway

watching the swallows -

one more presentiment

where certainty is not hard to come by:

wing tips brush the face of the waters,

swallows sip speed and night. — Gottfried Benn
