Blüte und Kreuz

Simplicity

back to home pdf share

Don’t torment yourself with questions

like whether, why, when and where…

And the reply - sweet-tempered -

will come as if out of the air.

 

Any results of your efforts

will disappear, spirit-like.

You know who the wise are:

those who in peace abide.

 

And this simple idea

is a call, a forgotten plan:

You are a man to be living,

and you are living to be a man.
