la notte at night

Worüber schreibe ich denn heute Nacht
Soll es Englisch sein or better German
Am liebsten wäre mir: über die grenzenlose night
So I don’t have to waste it twice
The word that sounds in every language nice
        nox
                la notte
And so on
Es ist schön
        gedankenverloren in die Sterne zu schauen
Tagsüber geht das ja nicht
Denn wo dann die andern Himmelskörper sind
Versperrt Irdisches die Sicht:
        Wolken
        ein zu helles Blau
        die allgegenwärtige Sonne
        and always the language barrier
Because with vision
There comes the urge to talk about it
When you see the stars
You know nothing about them
And so you are able to see
Without thinking
This is the best sight
Living without fight.
