to the knowing stars

Orion Nebula

Once emerged from the gray of night

Then ponderous and prized

and strengthened by fire

Evenings bowed by the fullness of God

Now heavenly showered with blue,

vanished over snow-covered mountains

to the knowing stars.

(English translation by Kathryn Porter Aichele)

Paul Klee (born 18 December, 1879)
for his birthday
