ERINNERUNG AN CARL SANDBURGREMEMBERING CARL SANDBURG
Volker von Törnetrans. Jean Boase-Beier & Anthony Vivis
There are men who can't be bought

Stürme werden dies Land
zerschlagen. Sammle die Sterne,
wenn du es magst. Alles muss einfach sein
für einen Henker.

Was tut Gott, wenn er einsam ist?
Das sind so Fragen.
There are men who can't be bought.

Storms will batter and break this land.
Pick up the stars,
if you feel so inclined. Everything must be simple
for a hangman.

What does God do, when he's lonely?
These are the things people ask.
