Walter Neiger, who writes the blog a picture a day keeps the doctor away with interesting, often whimsical black and white photographs – definitely well worth every visit – wrote a poem by Friedrich Hebbel in the comment to Autumn in Berchtesgaden National Park, which did delight me very much.
After some research I found this translation by Walter A. Aue:
This is a fall day like I never saw!
The air ist still, almost of breathing free,
but here and there are falling, without flaw,
the finest-looking fruits from every tree.
Do not disturb ripe nature’s holy day!
This is a harvest that is all her own,
because, today, each fruit that breaks away
falls from a milder ray of sun alone.
Thank you very much, Walter!
