Michael Hamburger translation May 5, 2003

IN THE SNAKE CARRIAGE, past

the white cypress tree,

through the surge

they drove you.


But in you, from

birth,

the other wellspring foamed,

on the black

jet remembrance

dayward you climbed.

Just to complete and enjoy... May 5, 2003

Here is also the German text, for all who shouldn\'t know it:


IM SCHLANGENWAGEN, an

der weißen Zypresse vorbei,

durch die Flut

fuhren sie dich.


Doch in dir, von

Geburt,

schäumte die andrer Quelle,

am schwarzen

Strahl Gedächtnis

klommst du zutag
