Georg Trakl: An meine Schwester (Gedicht)

An meine Schwester

Wo du gehst wird Herbst und Abend,
Blaues Wild, das unter Bäumen tönt,
Einsamer Weiher am Abend.

Leise der Flug der Vögel tönt,
Die Schwermut über deinen Augenbogen.
Dein schmales Lächeln tönt.

Gott hat deine Lider verbogen.
Sterne suchen nachts Karfreitagskind
Deinen Stirnenbogen.

Georg Trakl
(1887 – 1914)

Robert Southey: To Mary Wollstonecraft (Poem)

To Mary Wollstonecraft

The lilly cheek, the “purple light of love,”
The liquid lustre of the melting eye,–
Mary! of these the Poet sung, for these
Did Woman triumph! with no angry frown
View this degrading conquest. At that age
No MAID OF ARC had snatch’d from coward man
The heaven-blest sword of Liberty; thy sex
Could boast no female ROLAND’S martyrdom;
No CORDE’S angel and avenging arm
Had sanctified again the Murderer’s name
As erst when Caesar perish’d: yet some strains
May even adorn this theme, befitting me
To offer, nor unworthy thy regard.

(1774 – 1843)

Mondschein

Bleich und müde
Schmieg und weich
Kater duften
Blüten graunen
Wasser schlecken
Winde schluchzen
Schein entblößt die zitzen Brüste
Fühlen stöhnt in meine Hand.

Will Streets: A Soldier’s Funeral (Poem)

A Soldier’s Funeral

No splendid show of solemn funeral rite,
No stricken mourners following his bier,
No peal of organ reaching thro’ his night,
Is rendered him whom now we bury here.

‘Tis but a soldier stricken in the fight,
A youth who flung his passion into life,
Flung scorn at Death, fought true for Freedom’s might,
Till Death did close his vision in the strife.

No splendid rite is here – yet lay him low,
Ye comrades of his youth he fought beside,
Close where the winds do sigh and wild flowers grow,
Where the sweet brook doth babble by his side.
No splendour, yet we lay him tenderly
To rest, his requiem the artillery.

Nähe des Todes

O der Abend, der in die finsteren Dörfer der Kindheit geht.
Der Weiher unter den Weiden
Füllt sich mit den verpesteten Seufzern der Schwermut.

O der Wald, der leise die braunen Augen senkt,
Da aus des Einsamen knöchernen Händen
Der Purpur seiner verzückten Tage hinsinkt.

O die Nähe des Todes. Laß uns beten.
Jn dieser Nacht lösen auf lauen Kissen
Vergilbt von Weihrauch sich der Liebenden schmächtige Glieder.

Morphina

Im Traume fand ich dich,
Mädchen, in mondener Nacht
Kamst du mir zögernd entgegen.
Auf deiner Stirne träumte ein Stern,
Deine kleinen Schritte klangen wie Glas,
Um deinen Mund ein überweltliches Lächeln.
Deine schmalen Schultern froren im Wind.
Ich umschlang dich, deinen eisigen Körper.
Schwester! wie lange bist du gestorben …
Wir sanken, wir fielen.

Mohn umblühte unser Sterben.

Robert Southey: The Pauper’s Funeral (Poem)

The Pauper’s Funeral

What! and not one to heave the pious sigh!
Not one whose sorrow-swoln and aching eye
For social scenes, for life’s endearments fled,
Shall drop a tear and dwell upon the dead!
Poor wretched Outcast! I will weep for thee,
And sorrow for forlorn humanity.
Yes I will weep, but not that thou art come
To the stern Sabbath of the silent tomb:
For squalid Want, and the black scorpion Care,
Heart-withering fiends! shall never enter there.
I sorrow for the ills thy life has known
As thro’ the world’s long pilgrimage, alone,
Haunted by Poverty and woe-begone,
Unloved, unfriended, thou didst journey on:
Thy youth in ignorance and labour past,
And thine old age all barrenness and blast!
Hard was thy Fate, which, while it doom’d to woe,
Denied thee wisdom to support the blow;
And robb’d of all its energy thy mind,
Ere yet it cast thee on thy fellow-kind,
Abject of thought, the victim of distress,
To wander in the world’s wide wilderness.

Poor Outcast sleep in peace! the wintry storm
Blows bleak no more on thine unshelter’d form;
Thy woes are past; thou restest in the tomb;–
I pause–and ponder on the days to come.

Marcel Schwob: Rasant les murs du port… (Poème)

 

Rasant les murs du port…

Rasant les murs du port, passent trois matelots.
Le loustic de la bande a dans une bataille
Attrapé sur le nez une profonde entaille,
Il rit et bat à coups de poings les volets clos.
Sous l’obscure lueur sanglante des falots,
Une hôtesse ventrue à mine de futaille
Leur fait signe et tous trois, la prenant par la taille,
Se poussent au comptoir derrière les hublots.
Les mathurins béats, accoudés sur la table,
Avalent éblouis un velours délectable
Versé par le patron dans leurs quarts de fer-blanc.
A côté d’un gabier qui va dégringolant,
De l’escalier graisseux et vermoulu du bouge
Une fille en cheveux descend, la trogne rouge.

(1867-1905)

Will Streets: Comrades (Poem)

Comrades

Those whom I’ve known, admired, ardently friended
Lie silent there wrapp’d in a soldier’s shroud;
Death broke their dreams, their aspirations ended,
These sanguine youth, noble, brave and proud.

Slowly they bear them ‘neath the dim star light
Unto their rest – the soldiers’ cemetery:
The chaplain chants a low, brief litany;
The nightingale flings rapture on the night.

Back to their Mother Earth this night return
Unnumbered youth along the far-flung line;
But ’tis for these my eyes with feeling burn,
That Memory doth erect a fadeless shrine –
For these I’ve known, admired, ardently friended
Stood by when Death their love, their youth swift ended.

Das Kommen
Schreit!

Will Streets: Shelley in the Trenches 2nd May 1916 (Poem)

Shelley in the Trenches 2nd May 1916

Impressions are like winds; you feel their cool
Swift kiss upon the brow, yet know not where
They sprang to birth: so like a pool
Rippled by winds from out their forest lair
My soul was stir’d to life; its twilight fled;
There passed across its solitude a dream
That wing’d with supreme ecstasy did seem;
That gave the kiss of life to long-lost dead.

A lark trill’d in the blue: and suddenly
Upon the wings of his immortal ode
My soul rushed singing to the ether sky
And found in visions, dreams, its real abode –
I fled with Shelly, with the lark afar,
Unto the realms where the eternal are.

Kate Tempest nieuwe CD: Book of Traps and Lessons

Kate Tempest is een Londense rapper, dichter en toneelschrijfster.  Ze bracht al twee soloalbums uit, namelijk ‘Everybody Down’ in 2014 en ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ in 2016, beiden werden genomineerd voor een Mercury Prize.

Ook bracht ze meerdere dichtbundels en een roman uit en schreef ze drie toneelstukken, maar nu is het tijd voor haar derde album.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tempest-lessons12-1.jpegNet als haar vorige twee albums zal ‘The Book Of Traps And Lessons’ een narratief karakter kennen en bestaan uit meerdere nummers die bedoeld zijn om in één zitting te beluisteren.

Tempest werkte de afgelopen vijf jaar aan dit album.

Nadat producer Rick Rubin contact met haar zocht, maakte ze enkele demo’s, maar die sloten niet aan bij wat de twee samen wilden maken.

Daarom werd het maken van ‘The Books Of Traps And Lessons’ even op pauze gezet en verscheen ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ eerder (in 2016).

Ondertussen werd er langzaam doorgewerkt aan het album, samen met Rubin trad Tempest in detail en ging op zoek naar de kern van haar werk, de tekst die los kwam te staan van de beat.

Het is dan ook niet gek dat we op dit album minder begeleidende muziek horen dan op haar eerdere twee albums.

Kate Tempest hoopt dat mensen zich met het album zullen vereenzelvigen en als gevolg beter met zichzelf en met anderen gaan verbinden.

Tracklist
1. Thirsty
2. Keep Moving Don’t Move
3. Brown Eyed Man
4. Three Sided Coin
5. I Trap You
6. All Humans Too Late
7. Hold Your Own
