DerKrankeMond

7. Der Kranke Mond 2012 encaustic monotype, acrylic, & pastel 23" X 23"

The Sick Moon

flute

You somber, deathly-stricken moon,
There on heaven's darkest couch,
Your gaze, so feverishly swollen,
Charms me like a strange enchanted air.

Of insatiable love pangs
You die, die, by yearning overwhelmed.
You somber, deathly-stricken moon,
There on heaven's darkest couch.

The lover who, with rapturous heart,
Without care to his mistress goes
Is happy in your play of light,
In your pale and tormented blood,
You somber, deathly-stricken moon.

PART TWO

DerNacht

8. Der Nacht 2012 encaustic on panel. 14" X 17"

The Night

bass clarinet in Bflat, cello, piano

Somber, shadowy, giant mothwings
Killed the splendid shine of sun,
An unopened magic-book,
The dark horizon lies - in silence.

The dank fumes of lower darkness
Give off vapor - stifling memory!
Somber, shadowy, giant mothwings
Killed the splendid shine of sun.

And from ehaven down to earth
Sink, with heavy, swinging motion
Monster's huge, an unseen terror
On all mankind's hearts now falling-
Somber, shadowy, giant mothwings.

GebetanPierrot
9. Gebet an Pierrot 2012 pastel, collage on monotype 22" X13 3/4"

Prayer to Pierrot

clarinet in A, piano

Pierrot! My laughter
I have forgot!
The image of splendor
Dissolved, dissolved.

Black waves my banner
Now from my mast.
Pierrot! My laughter
I have forgot!

O give me once more
Horse-doctor of souls,
Snowman of lyrics.
Moon's maharajah.
Pierrot - My laughter!
