Humbly the patient one knuckles
down before grief
Resounding with harmony
and gentle insanity.
See! It dusks already.

(from "In an Old Family Album ")

Internet Literaturnische

    The three reasons to place information about the unique poet Trakl
    onto the ever-changing ocean of the internet are:

    • The information about him on the web, in both English and German, is fragmentary in nature.
    • The desire to cultivate a taste for Trakl in English.
    • And most of all we simply love his poetry!
