Give me, Pushkin, your harmony, your speech, free and unchained,
your captivating fate, as in jest, to call down fire with words

excess in the notion of fire, were the corpse to lie down to watch us, the
flash to be corpulent thunder...
Aug 26 Paul Celan romanian
With the voice of the fieldmouse you squeak up to me, a sharp clip, you
bite your way way through my shirt to the skin...

Yes I know my own beginning. Unrequited like all flaming, glowing,
I transcend myself. All I touch turns into light, fertile ash I leave

Still the same kindness of God flows from the unequivocal skies...
