36: Wrack im Mondschein

Wrack im Mondschein

On the side it lies as if at rest after the voyage
and it seems so calm and peaceful –
were it not that I have learnt
in quite as hard a way as this ship
that the sea is treacherous
I should believe that it had fallen from the sky
all by itself –

And the moon shines and the water’s still
in calmest night
with not a member of the crew
anywhere in sight –
