Georg Trakl

(3 February 1887 - 3 November 1914 / Salzburg)

Klage - Poem by Georg Trakl

Dreamless sleep - the dusky Eagles
nightlong rush about my head,
man's golden image drowned
in timeless icy tides. On jagged reefs
his purpling body. Dark
echoes sound above the seas.

Stormy sadness' sister, see
our lonely skiff sunk down
by starry skies:
the silent face of night.
