    • POEM: Across The Fields by Hermann Hesse (6/17/2011 7:39:00 AM)

      A different and, I think, better translation of this poem appeared in Poor Old Tired Horse No.16. The translator was Lesley Lendrum it reads

      'Clouds blow across the sky
      and the wind across the field
      across the field wanders
      my mother's lost child

      Leaves fly across the path
      across the trees the birds fly
      somewhere across the hills
      my far off home must be'
