Günter Eich

(1907-1972 / Lebus)

Dreams

Wake up, your dreams are bad!
Stay awake, the nightmarishness is coming ever nearer.

To you too it is coming, though you live far from
the places of bloodshed,
even to you and your sacrosanct
afternoon nap.
If not today, then tomorrow,
but it will certainly come.
