Rainer Maria Rilke / Liebeslied

Liebeslied

Wie soll ich meine Seele halten, daß
sie nicht an deine rührt? Wie soll ich sie
hinheben über dich zu andern Dingen?
Ach gerne möcht ich sie bei irgendwas
Verlorenem im Dunkel unterbringen
an einer fremden stillen Stelle, die
nicht weiterschwingt, wenn deine Tiefen schwingen.
Doch alles, was uns anrührt, dich und mich,
nimmt uns zusammen wie ein Bogenstrich,
der aus zwei Saiten eine Stimme zieht.
Auf welches Instrument sind wir gespannt?
Und welcher Spieler hat uns in der Hand?
O süßes Lied!

Rainer Maria Rilke





Love Song

How can I keep my soul in me, so that
it doesn't touch your soul? How can I raise
it high enough, past you, to other things?
I would like to shelter it, among remote
lost objects, in some dark and silent place
that doesn't resonate when your depths resound.
Yet everything that touches us, me and you,
takes us together like a violin's bow,
which draws one voice out of two separate strings.
Upon what instrument are we two spanned?
And what musician holds us in his hand?
Oh sweetest song.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Translated by Stephen Mitchell





Love Song

How shall I hold my soul and yet not touch
It with your own? How shall I ever place
It clear of you on anything beyond?
Oh gladly I would stow it next to such
Things in the darkness as are never found
Down in an alien and silent space
That does not resonate when you resound.
But everything that touches me and you
Takes us together like a bow on two
Taut strings to stroke them to the voice of one.
What instrument have we been lain along?
Whose are the hands that play our unison?
Oh sweet song!

Rainer Maria Rilke

Translated by A. Z. Foreman





Canción de amor

¿Cómo sujetar mi alma para
que no roce la tuya?
¿Cómo debo elevarla
hasta las otras cosas, sobre ti?
Quisiera cobijarla bajo cualquier objeto perdido,
en un rincón extraño y mudo
donde tu estremecimiento no pudiese esparcirse.

Pero todo aquello que tocamos, tú y yo,
nos une, como un golpe de arco,
que una sola voz arranca de dos cuerdas.
¿En qué instrumento nos tensaron?
¿Y qué mano nos pulsa formando ese sonido?
¡Oh, dulce canto!

Rainer Maria Rilke





Canzone d'amore

Come potrei trattenerla in me,
la mia anima, che la tua non sfiori;
come levarla oltre te, all'infinito?
Potessi nasconderla in un angolo
sperduto nelle tenebre;
un estraneo rifugio silenzioso
che non seguiti a vibrare
se vibra il tuo profondo.
Ma tutto quello che ci tocca, te
e me insieme
ci tende come un arco
che da due corde un suono solo rende
Su quale strumento siamo tesi,
e quale grande musicista ci tiene nella mano?
O dolce canto.

Rainer Maria Rilke





Aşk Şarkısı

Ruhumu nasıl tutsam da, seninkine
değmese? Nasıl aşırsam üstünden
öbür şeylere ben onu?
Ah, karanlıkta yiten bir nesne
içre barındırmak isterdim onu ben
öyle bir yerde: bilinmedik, sessiz,
derinlerin titrerken titremeyen.

Bir var ki her değen bize, sana, bana, bak
birlikte alır bizi bir yay gibi ancak;
iki telden b i r ses çıkartır bize değen şey.
Biz hangi çalgıya gerilmişiz?
Hangi çalgının elindeyiz biz?
Tatlı şarkı ey...

Rainer Maria Rilke
