Best German Poems Ever – Einst Und Jetzt by Nikolaus Lenau

Uno stupido che cammina va più lontano di dieci intellettuali seduti (Jacques Séguéla)

Il giornalista è stimolato dalla scadenza. Scrive peggio se ha tempo. (Karl Kraus)

Nikolaus_Lenau

Lenau nel 1839

“Möchte wieder in die Gegend,
Wo ich einst so selig war,
Wo ich lebte, wo ich träumte
Meiner Jugend schönstes Jahr!”

Also sehnt` ich in der Ferne
Nach der Heimat mich zurück, Wähnend, in der alten Gegend
Finde ich das alte Glück.

Endlich war mir nun beschieden
Wiederkehr ins traute Tal;
Doch es ist dem Heimgekehrten
Nicht zu Mut wie dazumal.

Mögen deine Grüße rauschen
Vom Gestein, du trauter Bach;
Doch der Freund ist mir verloren,
Der in dein Gemurmel sprach.

 

Nikolaus Lenau

1802-1850
LENAU, NIKOLAUS, the pseudonym of NIKOLAUS FRANZ NIEMBSCH VON STREHLENAU (1802—1850), Austrian poet, who was born at Csatâd near Temesvar in Hungary, on the 25th of August 1802. His father, a government official, died at Budapest in 1807, leaving his children to the care of an affectionate, but jealous and somewhat hysterical, mother, who in 1811 married again. In 1819 the boy went to the university of Vienna; he subsequently studied Hungarian law at Pressburg and then spent the best part of four years in qualifying himself in medicine. But he was unable to settle down to any profession. (source allpoetry.com)
