The Daily Volcano Quote: a poem of volcanic creation 8 June 2011

Posted by admin in daily volcano quote.

Laven, Basalte, weltherz-
durchglühtes Gestein.
wo uns das Licht wuchs, vor
dem Atem.

[Lavas, basalts, worldheart’s-
annealed stone.
Wellspring tuff
where for us the light grew, before
our breath.]

Paul Celan, from ‘Entwurf einer Landschaft’ (1958).

The Daily Volcano Quote: from Monday to Friday, a new eruption of volcanic verbiage each day.
