Poetry by Franz Fassbind

Heimweg Im Oktober
______________
Hangt der Regen zwischen mir und dir
Seine graue Nebelwasche auf.
In den Waldern brullt ein wildes Tier;
Fahler Herbstwind frisst die Baume auf.

Fallt ein Glockenton und hockt sich breit
In den Stuben und hirnen hin.
Durch die Nebelwande ist es weit
Bis zu deinen Glockentonen hin.

Homeward Bound In October
