"Fallen Sie Langsam&Quot; - Poem by Peter Russell

I'm falling slowly in the night

The rain has fallen and the wind has dropped
The lime-trees in the street are silent now

From nowhere
Falling again to nowhere

Snatch a few kisses Listen carefully
When the nightingale breaks the silence

Drink of the grape as long as the grape
And the artificial lights illuminate
The corners of eternity

Through the long shadows I am falling
In a night that is perpetual
Where all the living sleep
