Paul Celan Quotes: Sand From The Urnsgreen As Mould Is The

Sand From The Urns
Green As Mould Is The House Of Oblivion.
Before Each Of The Blowing Gates Your Beheaded Minstrel Turns Blue.
For You He Beats His Drum Made Of Moss And Of Harsh
pubic Hair;
With A Festering Toe In The Sand He Traces Your Eyebrow.
Longer He Draws It Than Ever It Was, And The Red Of Your
lip.
You Fill Up The Urns Here And Nourish Your Heart.
— Paul Celan —
