Verwaist

Verwaist
Komm in den totgesagten park und schau:
Der schimmer ferner lächelnder gestade
Der reinen wolken unverhofftes blau
Erhellt die weiher und die bunten pfade.
Dort nimm das tiefe gelb – das weiche grau
Von birken und von buchs – der wind ist lau
Die späten rosen welkten noch nicht ganz
Erlese küsse sie und flicht den kranz
Vergiss auch die letzen astern nicht
Den purpur um die ranken wilder reben
Und auch was übrig blieb von grünem leben
Verwinde leicht im herbstlichen gesicht.


Stefan George

Come to the park they say is dead, and view
The shimmer of the smiling shores beyond,
The stainless clouds with unexpected blue
Diffuse a light on motley path and pond.

The tender grey, the burning yellow seize
Of birch and boxwood, mellow is the breeze.
Not wholly do the tardy roses wane,
So kiss and gather them and wreathe the chain.

The purple on the twists of wilding vine,
The last of asters you shall not forget,
And what of living verdure lingers yet,
Around the autumn vision lightly twine.

Eingang zum verwaisten Park des (nunmehr aufgelösten) Hauses der münsteraner Jesuiten.
Dort starb (1990) hochbetagt E.Lassalle, Jesuitenpater, der wesentlich dazu beitrug, das japanische Zen hier in Deutschland bekannt zu machen (ein in Japan hoch geehrter Mann).

This gate is so dainty. Why the garden has not been turned into a Zen Garden?

Klaus W. has replied to Evelyne Cole
Good question - actually the garden behind it, so long neglected, is soon to be reopened and will be reshaped and (I hope) embellished. We might take a walk there in case you should come to Münster one day...

I will be delighted, Klaus... Tell "them" to make a Zen Garden in memory of ...

Klaus W. has replied to Evelyne Cole
Actually I've been thinking of doing so. The aforementioned Father Lassalle would deserve this. He was in Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945 - just some hundred metres next to the exploding atom-bomb. People say that he survived only due to the fact that he by that time had gained some kind of genuine Zen-enlightenment.

This is such a good occasion to honor the life of Father Lassalle. You know the bomb fell right on top of the Catholic Church, wiping out the biggest Japanese Catholic communauty?

Klaus W. has replied to Evelyne Cole
No, I didn't know that so far.... It's nteresting that the other bomb hit Nagasaki - that was originally a town founded by the Portuguese, it was partly Christian in the beginning.-

Traumhaft schön dieses Tor. Da waren noch richtige Handwerker am Werk – nicht wie heute, praktisch alles maschinell. Sehr schön die Schärfe und die Kombination mit dem Grün des Gartens bringt Dein Tor hervorragend zur Geltung. Man sieht, dass es lange nicht mehr benutzt wurde. :-)
Liebe Grüsse und einen schönen Sonntag

The text is very touching and perfectly chosen with the picture. "The shimmer of the smiling shores beyond", so beautiful...the power of words.
