Treasure Island

Percy Bysshe Shelley

(1792-1822 / Horsham / England)

The World's Wanderers


I.
Tell me, thou Star, whose wings of light
Speed thee in thy fiery flight,
In what cavern of the night
Will thy pinions close now?

II.
Tell me, Moon, thou pale and gray
Pilgrim of Heaven’s homeless way,
In what depth of night or day
Seekest thou repose now?

III.
Weary Wind, who wanderest
Like the world’s rejected guest,
Hast thou still some secret nest
On the tree or billow?

    Wanderer über der Welt

    Nach Percy Bysshe Shelley:
    The World’s Wanderers

    1.

    Sag an, du Stern, wer weiß die Zahl
    All der Bahnen, die dein Strahl
    Nachtlichthell am Himmelssaal
    Heimwärts ist geflogen?

    2.

    Luna, sehnsuchtsblaß beschaut
    Und heimatlos, du Himmelsbraut,
    Wer hat dich, da der Morgen graut,
    Tief hinab gezogen?

    3.

    Irrer Wind, aus Süd und Nord
    Vertriebner Gast, an welchem Ort
    Flaut dein Flug vorm stillen Hort
    In Wipfeln oder Wogen? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
