Conviction

by Friedrich Holderlin

English version by Michael Hamburger
Original Language German

Like the bright day that shines on humankind
And with a light of heavenly origin
All things obscure and various gathers in,
Is knowledge, deeply granted to the mind.

-- from Holderlin: Selected Poems and Fragments, by Friedrich Holderlin / Translated by Michael Hamburger
