AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Scented.

Tingley, The Rendez-Vous, 1903


Wanderer in the black wind; quietly the dry reeds whisper
In the stillness of the moor. In the gray sky
A flock of wild birds follows;
Slanting over gloomy waters.

Turmoil. In decayed hut
The spirit of putrescence flutters with black wings.
Crippled birches in the autumn wind.

Evening in deserted tavern. The way home is scented all around
By the soft gloom of grazing herds;
Apparition of the night; toads plunge from brown waters.

Georg Trakl
