About Me

My photo
As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the specter of future pandemics. For my dissertation at LMU's Amerika-Institut, I'm anatomizing the poetics (especially the prosody) of E. A. Robinson's sonnets. I also teach at Münchner Volkshochschule and lead the Amerikahaus Literary Circle.

Neue Wunder

von Rose Ausländer

Im Traumorient
vieltausend Nächte verbringen.

Mit Menschen und Dingen
Freundschaften schließen.

Neue Verse und
Wunder erfinden.


New Wonders

by Rose Ausländer,
translated by Mark Olival-Bartley

Spend many thousand nights
in the Orient of dreams

Close friendship
with people and things

Forge new verse
and wonders


Note:  A recitation can be heard here.
