Wie kann man Gedichte machen
Lauter als die Schreie der Verwundeten
Tiefer als die Nacht der Hungernden
Leiser als Atem von Mund zu Mund
Härter als Leben
Weich wie Wasser, das den Stein überlebt?
Wie kann man keine Gedichte machen?

How can one make poems
Louder than the screams of the wounded
Deeper than the night of the starving
Softer than breath from mouth to mouth
Harder than life
Gentle as water that outlives stone?
How can one not make poems?

Inge Müller
