The Tattered Cord (Der Abgerissen Strick, translation with original German)

Bertolt Brecht 1898 (Augsburg) – 1956 (East Berlin)

The Tattered Cord

The tattered cord
can again become knotted.
It holds
but it is torn.

Perhaps we'll face
each other again
but there,
where you left me,
you'll not meet me
again.

Der Abgerissen Strick

Der abgerissene Strick
kann wieder geknotet werden
er hält wieder, aber
er ist zerrissen.

Vielleicht begegnen
wir uns wieder,
aber da,
wo du mich verlassen hast
triffst du mich
nicht wieder.
