by Ingeborg Bachmann
 Now the journey is ending,
the wind is losing heart.
Into your hands it's falling, a rickety house of cards.
The cards are backed with pictures displaying all the world.
You've stacked up all the images and shuffled them with words.
And how profound the playing that once again begins! Stay, the card you're drawing is the only world you'll win.

by Ingeborg Bachmann
 Wherever we turn in the storm of roses,
the night is lit up by thorns, and the thunder
of leaves, once so quiet within the bushes,
rumbling at our heels.
