Edith Södergran: Månen – Der mond

Edith Södergran

(1892-1923)


Månen

Vad allting som är dött är underbart
och outsägligt:
ett dött blad och en död människa
och månens skiva.
Och alla blommor veta en hemlighet
och skogen den bevarar,
det är att månens kretsgång kring vår jord
är dödens bana.
Och månen spinner sin underbara väv,
den blommor älska,
och månen spinner sitt sagolika nät
kring allt som lever.
Och månens skära mejar blommor av
i senhöstnätter,
och alla blommor vänta på månens kyss
i ändlös längtan.

(1922)


Der Mond

Wie wundersam ist alles Tote
wie unaussprechlich:
ein totes Blatt, ein toter Mensch
des Mondes Scheibe.
Und alle Blumen kennen ein Geheimnis
welches der Wald bewahrt:
des Mondes Kreisumlauf um unsre Erde
ist des Todes Bahn.
Und der Mond spinnt sein Gewebe wundersam
welches die Blumen lieben,
und der Mond spinnt sein Märchennetz
um alles Lebende.
Und des Mondes Sichel mäht Blumen ab
in Spätherbstnächten,
und alle Blumen warten auf des Mondes Kuß
in endlosem Verlangen.
