Come to me in the silence of the night;
     Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
     As sunlight on a stream;
          Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.

O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter sweet,
     Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet;
     Where thirsting longing eyes
          Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams that I may live
     My very life again though cold in death:
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
     Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
          Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.


Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

Der Tod ist groß.
Wir sind die Seinen
lachenden Munds.
Wenn wir uns mitten im Leben meinen,
wagt er zu weinen
mitten in uns.

- Schlussstück, Das Buch der Bilder von Rainer Maria Rilke (1902 und 1906)
