Poems by Friedrich Rückert

You are my moon

You are my moon and I am your earth;
You say you turn around me
I don't know, I only know that I will
bright through you in my nights.

You are my moon and I am your earth;
they say you change.
You alone change the gesture of light
and love me immutable.

You are my moon and I am your earth
only my earth shadow prevents you
the love torch always at the focus of the sun
to ignite at night for me.



love poem

As the sun shines,
As the cloud weeps,
As the flame sprays,
As spring blooms;
I felt so true
How I hold you wrapped around:
You love me as I love you
I love you as you love me.

The sun may shine
Stop crying the cloud
The flame may spray
Spring no longer bloom!
We want to get around
And always feel like this:
You love me as I love you;
I love you as you love me.
