Comme Un Dieu
Vocals: Martin Diehl | Music: Martin Diehl, Helmut Halfmann]

[Scroll down for an English translation of Arthur Rimbaud's original poem.]

Wie ein Gott.
(Wie ein Gott,...)

Wie ein Gott.
(Wie ein Gott,...)

Wie ein Gott.
(Wie ein Gott,...)


Flowers

From a golden step, among silk cords, green velvets, gray gauzes, and crystal disks that turn black as bronze in the sun, I see the digitalis opening on a carpet of silver filigree, of eyes and hair.

Yellow gold-pieces strewn over agate, mahogany columns supporting emerald domes, bouquets of white satin and delicate sprays of rubies, surround the water-rose.

Like a god with huge blue eyes and limbs of snow, the sea and sky lure to the marble terraces the throng of roses, young and strong.
