My life in increasing circles is spun (Ich lebe mein Leben in wachsenden Ringen)

My life in increasing circles is spun,
encompassing newer things still.
I may not reach the last possible one
but try it I will.

Round God, ancient tower, I orbit and stalk
and circle a thousand years long;
and I know not if I be tempest or hawk
or a wonderful song.

poem by from Das Stunden-Buch (20 September 1899), translated by Alan MarshfieldReport problemRelated quotes
