O Leben Leben - Need English Translation

Hallo, I would greatly appreciate anyone's help in translating this poem (aus dem Nachlaß) into English. (Volker -- if you're reading this, I promise I haven't even attempted to try to translate this one!) O Leben Leben, wunderliche Zeit von Widerspruch zu Widerspruche reichend Im Gange oft so schle...

Hi Marie, I can certainly relate to what you were saying about pop music. During the years we lived in Germany, I alsolutely loved a lot of the pop German songs I heard and even the Italian Hits, though I usually understood very little. You are right. The words to a song are often disappointing, tho...

"Advent"

Hallo Volker and Marie, Thanks so much to both of you for your responses.

"Advent"

Hi Volker, Just wanted to say, if I understand this poem correctly, I think I can see why it was never translated into English in any of the books with English translation of Rilke's work (and I think I have them all!) You lose the magic of Rilke's play on words in the line "Sie fromm und lichterhei...

"Advent" translation

Hi Volker, Thanks so very, very much for the translation and also for the explantion about the word "lichterheilig." This is really a big help. Below is what I had come up with on my own, but I see that I had missed the mark in quite a few places. I studied German at Christian-Albrechts University f...

"Advent" - Need English translation

Could someone please help me translate this poem? I can't find an English translation for it anywhere.
