The Second Poem the Night-Walker Wrote

by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

English version by Robert Bly
Original Language German

Over all the hilltops
Silence,
Among all the treetops
You feel hardly
A breath moving.
The birds fall silent in the woods.
Simply wait! Soon
You too will be silent.

-- from News of the Universe: Poems of Twofold Consciousness, Edited by Robert Bly
