Bertolt Brecht

(10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956 / Augsburg)

The Tattered Cord (Der Abgerissen Strick, translation with original German)


The Tattered Cord


The tattered cord
can again become knotted.
It holds
but it is torn.

Perhaps we'll face
each other again
but there,
where you left me,
you'll not meet me
again.

Der Abgerissen Strick


Der abgerissene Strick
kann wieder geknotet werden
er hält wieder, aber
er ist zerrissen.

Vielleicht begegnen
wir uns wieder,
aber da,
wo du mich verlassen hast
triffst du mich
nicht wieder.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
