Blauer Schmetterling -Hermann Hesse

Flügelt ein kleiner blauer
Falter vom Wind geweht,
Ein perlmutterner Schauer,
Glitzert,flimmert,vergeht.
So mit Augenblicksblinken,
So im Vorüberwehn
Sah ich das Glück mir winken,
Glitzern,flimmern,vergehn.Hermann Hesse

 

A Blue Moth

A small blue moth flutters,

tossed by the wind;

a frisson of a mother-of -pearl shower.

Glittering, shimmering and passing.

So in an instant glance

or past whisper,

I saw bliss wink at me,

Glittering, shimmering but passing
