Lichtenbergs Musik

What lively maid most pleasured me

Of all that with me lay?

I answer that I gave my soul

And loved in misery,

But had great pleasure with a maid

That I loved bodily.

Flinging from her arms I laughed

To think her passion such

She fancied that I gave a soul

Did but our bodies touch,

And laughed upon her breast to think

Beast gave beast as much.



I gave what other fellow gave

That stepped out of their clothes.

But when this soul, its body off,

Naked to naked goes,

She it has found shall find therein

What none other knows.

And give her own and take her own

And rule in her own right;

And though it loved in misery

Close and cling so tight,

There's not a bird of day that dare

Extinguish that delight.

By William Butler Yeats

Dank an Conny Paulus für die

Überarbeitung des Textes.

Für das Bild zu "Last Confession" haben wir Dürers Adam und Eva endlich vereint.

Über 500 Jahre mußten beide ihr Dasein auf getrennten Holtafeln fristen.   

Seht ihr Adams Freude, endlich Evas Hand zu spüren?
