Zukunft


Was ich thue, ist vergeblich Streben,
Dunkel nur und zweifelhaft mein Wissen;
Was ich wünsche, muß ich stets vermissen,
Täuschung nur und Trug will mich umgeben.

Aber Dauer weilet nicht beim Leben,
Und so werd′ ich′s endlich auch beschließen;
Diesem Nachtgewölk′ des Wahns entrissen,
Wird mich hell′re Klarheit einst umweben.

Nahen Tag verkündet uns Aurore,
Licht muß siegend durch den Schatten dringen;
Wenn wir männlich nach der Wahrheit ringen,

Oeffnen sich die goldnen Flügelthore
Ihrer Heimath, und hinüber bringen
Wird den Sehnenden die nächste Hore.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
