do the roses still grow wild?

I am accustomed to flat land.

Mountains are beautiful memories

I have learned to live without.

When I raise the lights you are

a dim place, a face fading.

Still how does one forget the stars in the galaxy,

untamed horses on run-away adventure

or murmuring nights of desire?

Do the roses still grow wild in your garden,

untended lovers or prolific lies.

“It is well for the heart to be naïve and the mind not to be”

Anatole France

Wachsen die Rosen noch wild?

Ich gewöhnte mich ans flache Land.
Die Berge sind schöne Erinnerungen.
Ich lernte, ohne sie zu leben.
Wenn ich das Licht heller mache,
versinkst du im Dämmerlicht, entschwindet dein Gesicht.
Doch wie kann man die Sterne in der Milchstraße vergessen,
ungezähmte Pferde auf Abenteuerreise,
oder die rauschenden Nächte der Begierde?
Wachsen die Rosen noch wild in deinem Garten?
Unbehütete Liebhaber oder fruchtbare Lügen.

“Es ist gut, wenn das Herz naiv ist, aber nicht der Kopf.”

Anatole France
