Ich weiss nicht, wie man die Liebe macht


Wie ich weiss, "macht" man die Liebe nicht.

Sie weint bei einem Wachslicht im Dach.

Ach, sie waechst im Lichten, im Winde bei

Nacht. Sie wacht im weichen Bilde, im Eis

des Niemals, im Bitten: wache, wie ich. Ich

weiss, wie ich macht man die Liebe nicht.

Stay awake like me. 
Keep watch like me
