now I have thrown off secrecy, now
I have walked naked into the street,
now I have scattered my heavy beauty
in the open market.
Here I am with head high and a
burning heart eagerly awaiting
your caresses, whoever it may be,
for granite is not harder than
my love is open, runs loose among you!

I arrogant against death! I

But it is five o'clock. Come!
Life is good—enjoy it!
A walk in the park while the day lasts.

northern scenery is not the Nile, but—
these benches—the yellow and purple
 dusk—
the moon there—these tired people—
the lights on the water!

The world is young, surely! Young
and colored like—a girl that has come
 upon
a lover! Will that do?
