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
