Lowell, Amy: Ein jahr vergeht (A year passes in German)

Portre of Lowell, Amy
Portre of Beilharz, Johannes

Back to the translator

A year passes (English)

Beyond the porcelain fence of the pleasure garden,
I hear the frogs in the blue-green ricefields;
But the sword-shaped moon
Has cut my heart in two.

Ein jahr vergeht (German)

Hinter dem Porzellanzaun des Lustgartens
Höre ich die Frösche in den blaugrünen Reisfeldern;
Aber der schwertförmige Mond
Hat mein Herz entzwei geschnitten.
