Treasure Island

Franz Werfel

(10 September 1890 – 26 August 1945 / Prague)

The Creature's Stare


You stroke the fur of the big fine dog.
Looking way down into its eyes, you speak,
Pointing out for me the enormous sorrow
That's continuously fixed upon us.

When angels look deep in men's eyes,-
I replied-beneath their noble brows,
They will ask about the same thing in dismay
And turn away for they cannot bear it.

Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
