Chaos – Erik Johan Stagnelius


birth-of-a-god-2

Τherefore, rejoice, O friend and sing in the deep dark of sorrow:
Night is the Mother of Day; Chaos the Neighbor of God.

 

 

Erik Johan Stagnelius wrote romantic poems about misery & madness some 200 years ago. Most of his poems where found in a sack in his apartment, after he had died.

In one poem he speaks about who we can turn to when our inner soul is laid out in darkness and we even can’t sigh anymore… Who can help in desolate times? In perfect despair? Only the One Powerful Being, that from the darkness of the night made suns dance, the world creating Word…

 

Ο Erik Johan Stagnelius έγραψε ρομαντικά ποιήματα για τη δυστυχία και την τρέλα περίπου 200 χρόνια πριν. Τα περισσότερα από τα ποιήματά του, που βρέθηκαν σε ένα σάκο στο διαμέρισμά του, αφού πέθανε.

Σε ένα ποίημά του μιλάει σε ποιον μπορούμε να στραφούμε όταν η   ψυχή μας είναι  στο σκοτάδι και δεν μπορούμε ακόμη και να αναστενάξουμε πια …

Ποιος μπορεί να βοηθήσει σε έρημους χρόνους; Σε απόλυτη απελπισία; Μόνο το Ένα Ισχυρό Ον, που από το σκοτάδι της νύχτας έκανε τους ήλιους να χορεύον , ο Λόγος που δημιούργησε στον κόσμο….

  1. This train is bound for glory, this train.
    This train is bound for glory, this train.
    This train is bound for glory,
    Don’t carry nothing but the righteous and the holy.
    This train is bound for glory, this train.

    This train don’t carry no gamblers, this train;
    This train don’t carry no gamblers, this train;
    This train don’t carry no gamblers,
    Liars, thieves, nor big shot ramblers,
    This train is bound for glory, this train.

    This train don’t carry no liars, this train;
    This train don’t carry no liars, this train;
    This train don’t carry no liars,
    She’s streamlined and a midnight flyer,
    This train don’t carry no liars, this train.

    This train don’t carry no smokers, this train;
    This train don’t carry no smokers, this train
    This train don’t carry no smokers,
    Two bit liars, small time jokers,
    This train don’t carry no smokers, this train.

    This train don’t carry no con men, this train;
    This train don’t carry no con men, this train;
    This train don’t carry no con men,
    No wheeler dealers, here and gone men,
    This train don’t carry no con men, this train.

    This train don’t carry no rustlers, this train;
    This train don’t carry no rustlers, this train;
    This train don’t carry no rustlers,
    Sidestreet walkers, two bit hustlers,
    This train is bound for glory, this train.
