Frühlingstänzerin

In deinen Blicken wiegt sich der Frühling.
Rosengeflecht und ein Apfelzweig
Schaukeln ihn duftend einher.

Auf deiner Lippen Granat- und Marmorsitz
Streiten zehntausend Lerchen in süßem Tumult
Wähnend sie säßen im Morgenrot.

Wo deine lieblich errötenden Füße schreiten,
Schlägt aus dem Boden ein holder Schwall von Musik
Und erstürmt sich den Himmel.

Wippend dem zierlichen Schmetterling gleich
Schreitest du tanzerhobenen Arms
Wie über schwankendes Seil.

Wenn deine tastenden Brüste den Atem der Gärten verspüren,
Heben und senken sie sich, zugespitzt,
In verworrnen Gedanken.

Zierlich ist deine Seele, dem Rotkehlchen gleich,
Und so ängstlich, daß sie bei plötzlichem Wort
Flatternd im Käfig sich stößt.

(Frühlingstänzerin by Hugo Ball, 1886-1927)

INTERNA

A reader emailed me to say that the page is loading slower than normal.

I did add a few plug-in thingies to the sidebar over the past few days, however, for me, the page loaded at the same speed as always.

Has anyone else experienced difficulties accessing the site?

I can highly recommend Jessica's Awaken and Derek's Wingnut / Dirteater prints. They're utterly adorable.
