Lowell, Amy: Der Teich (The Pond in German)

Portre of Lowell, Amy
Portre of Beilharz, Johannes

Back to the translator

The Pond (English)

Cold, wet leaves
Floating on moss-colored water,
And the croaking of frogs —
Cracked bell-notes in the twilight.

Der Teich (German)

Kalte, nasse Blätter
Treiben auf moosfarbigem Wasser,
Und das Quaken der Frösche —
Zu Bruch gegangener Glockenklang im Zwielicht.
