Evan's Return and Honour
to the German poet
Wilhelm Lehmann

Towards Home

"Rückkehr" - Evan's Translation

The bird course breaks in:
The reed accomodation,
the distance rushes to it enough
and everything there a here.

The high sea drives on
the swans white play;
Gehobnen of wing it,
which Leda probably pleased.

To the beech root’s lap
moves steep bank near.
Their old realm inhabits,
tree goddess Helena.

Se has returned, fully
Of Trojans warriors,
greedy view refused,
in root, branches, sheet.
