Georg Trakl

(3 February 1887 - 3 November 1914 / Salzburg)

Autumnal Homecoming


Memory, buried hope

Is preserved by this brown timber,

Dahlias hang over it

Ever more silent homecoming,

The dark reflection of childish years

By the decayed garden,

That tears fall from blue eyelids

Irresistibly;

Gloom's crystalline minutes

Gleam over

To the night.

    I can feel my autumn comes... with its winter friend. Soon they will embrace me and nothing will remain...* * (Report) Reply
