George Trakl - Songs of the Rosary

Songs of the Rosary
To my Sister

Where you walk it turns autumn and evening,
Beneath trees, blue game that sounds.
Lonely pond at eventide.

Quiet the flight of birds sounds,
Melancholy over your eyebrows.
Your slender smile sounds.

God has distorted your eyelids.
Stars seek at night, Good Friday child,
The sweep of your brow.
