Under Ben Bulben Part VI

Under bare Ben Bulben's head
In Drumcliff churchyard Yeats is laid.
An ancestor was rector there
Long years ago, a church stands near,
By the road an ancient cross.
No marble, no conventional phrase;
On limestone quarried near the spot
By his command these words are cut:
 
Cast a cold Eye
On Life, on Death.
Horseman, pass by!

Unter dem Ben Bulben, Teil VI

Unter Ben Bulbens kahlem Hut
Yeats auf Drumcliffs Kirchhof ruht.
Einst war sein Vorfahr Pfarrer dort,
ein Kirchlein steht an diesem Ort,
ein altes Hochkreuz an der Straße.
Kein Marmor, keine platte Phrase;
in Kalk, der nah gebrochen wird,
sei dies auf sein Geheiß graviert:
 
Gelassen, Reiter,
sieh Leben, sieh Tod,
und zieh dann weiter!
 
Grazie!
