Brenne (burn)

by Scott Utley


Verbrenne meine wilde Seele

Ich bin Papier, das an all seinen Ecken brennt.

Du bist der Rauch, zu dem ich werde.

"Burn my wild soul. I am paper, which burns at all its corners. You are the smoke, which I become." This is what Babel Fish gave as a translation. Very pretty. It makes me wish I knew other languages. :)

This made me miss Cologne more than ever. This piece is perfect.

Excellent Scott! Congratulations on POTD! Learning languages is fun - I love learning Spanish - writing and speaking in that language.
