Und
Stämme schlanken weiten Himmel
Und
Herzen schwanken brüten Schmerz
Und
Halme hauchen welle Stürme
Und
Schweigen schrickt
Und
Beugt und geht
Und
Gehen Gehen
Wege Ziele Richtung
Und
Gehen Gehen
Lieben Leben Tod
Und
Gehen Gehen
Endlos wellen Stürme
Und
Gehen Gehen
Endlos Halmt
Das
Nichts.

Question

And
Trunks shrink wide skies
And
Hearts sway brood grief
And
Stalks breathe wavy storms
And
Silence scares
And
Bends and goes
And
Going going
Ways goals direction
And
Going going
Love life death
And
Going going
Endless wave storms
And
Going going
Endless stems
The
Nothing.
