    In den flussen nördlich der Zukunft

    In den flussen nördlich der Zukunft
    werf ich das Netz aus, das du
    zögernd beschwerst
    mit von Steinen geschriebenen

    Nei fiumi a nord del futuro

    Nei fiumi a nord del futuro
    getto la rete che tu,
    esitante, carichi
    di ombre scritte
    da pietre

Best Poem of Paul Celan

Death Fugue

Black milk of daybreak we drink it at sundown

hair Margarete
he writes it and steps out of doors and the stars are
flashing he whistles his pack out
he whistles his Jews out in earth has them dig for a
he commands us strike up for the dance

Black milk of daybreak we drink you at ...

In Front Of A Candle

I formed the holder of gold,
as you told me to mother,
gold, out of which She comes,
a shade, to me, in the middle
of fracturing hours,
being-dead’s daughter.

Slender in shape,
