    At night, when heavenly peace is flying
    Above the world that sorrow mars

    For then I greet you from the stars7

Best Poem of Annette Von Droste-Hulshoff

In The Grass

Sweet peace, sweet delight of grass,
Of its aroma breathed about me:
Deep draught, deep, deeply drunk draught.
When the clouds above are clearing,
When upon my tired, dizzy head
Sweet laughter flutters down,
When a dear voice murmurs and drops
Like Linden blossom onto a grave.

When, in the breast, the dead then
Stretch their bodies and stir,
Softly, softly drawing breath
And move their lashes from closed,
Dead love, dead desires, dead time,
All the treasures reduced to dust,
Stir with a timorous sound
Like bells that chime in the wind. ...
