Mein schönstes Gedicht

Mein schönstes Gedicht?

Ich schrieb es nicht.

Aus tiefsten Tiefen stieg es.

Ich schwieg es.

  1. I don’t know Mascha Kaleko. To judge by these lines I should remedy that.

    Apropos WB: I agree that Busch’s poetry (if it can be called poetry) and cautionary tales include much which we would no longer find acceptable today. I would include the brothers Grimm and their fairy tale collection. But one must always judge any work in the context of its time. There is much in art and literature which could never be produced today, yet it still remains relevant.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m happy to ‘know’ you.
