Violin by Klara Bachmair


Nacht verweil
(taken from F. Nietzsche – Die Sonne sinkt)

Nacht meines Lebens!
Wie lange durstest du schon?
Nacht meines Endes!
Wie lange zögerst du noch, verbranntes Herz.

Verheißung ist rings in der Luft.
Die große Kühle kommt!
Ein Bannspruch schwebt in der Luft.
Die letzte Stille kommt …

Sonne, einst heiß über mir,
Seid mir gegrüßt, kommt.
Ihr plötzlichen Winde, Geister der Nacht!
Mein Atem geht fremd und rein.

Nacht komm!
Nacht! Ich bin da!
Nacht verweil!
Frag nicht: warum?
Frag nicht: warum?

Rings nur Welle und Spiel.
Was je schwer war, blaue Vergessenheit.
Müßig steht mein Kahn,
Meine letzte zögernde Seligkeit.


from Okeanos, released July 13, 2018
