Elegy – 6

I had recently composed this poem in German.  My translation method here is somewhat liberal.   I hope you will enjoy my work with the words in their English transformation.




no final contact

warning failed


despaired devastation,

destroying humiliation


self-respect, departed

massive grief, incapable of solace


too late to await

to expect at last

that what was evidenced

many years ago…



a mere I without a name
