The Tankards

Great PoetryPosted by Graham Thompson Mon, November 23, 2015 14:19:33
At the long tables of time
The Tankards of God carouse,
They empty the eyes of the seeing and the eyes of the blind,
The hearts of the ruling shadows,
The hollow cheek of evening.
They are the most mighty tipplers:
They drink up the full and they drink up the empty
And never foam over as you do or I.

Paul Celan
Translated from the German by Ingo Seidler
