To touch it all

by

Annemarie Kaim Collins

Between the layers of day and night,
Iím piercing through the universe,
With increasing will to feel it right:
The joys, the pains, and the eternal curse.

While gazing into changing skies,
I see a troubled world surrender,
Hear laughter and chilling cries,
See hatred, greed, yet love so tender.

But as I lie in breathless wonder,
Iím reaching further to get in,
And then beyond, and out from under
All that glory and all that sin.

I see hardship and mindless suffering,
Then - ecstasy and willful lust,
Embracing it all into my shivering skin,
I dance on top of ever-growing dust.

My wings get burned by the flickering sky,
I am descending in a torching fall,
But here I was born, and here Iíll die,
While reaching out to touch it all _

Ein grosser Wille

by

Annemarie Kaim Collins

Ein grosser Wille

Im starren Winter, frost-umblaut,
Warten einsam karge Baeume.
Der Blick is weit und unvertraut,
Verirrte Voegel teilen ihre Traeume.

Im .tiefsten Kern liegt sehnend verborgen
Erinnerung an Sonne und laue Luefte
Und wiegende Blaetter im Fruehlingsmorgen,
Sich oeffnende Blueten, und die Duefte_

Auf diese Sehnsucht faellt leiser Schnee,
Ueberpudert das Starre und die Stille,
Verzaubert die Oede und ihr graues Weh.
Oh Herr, die Natur ist ein grosser Wille!
