The Prior of the Flowers

She loves me, she loves me not,
she loves me, she loves me not.
Chance's doctrine shows us how
to balance sighs and glances now,
or icy looks when cares abound,
with petals falling on the ground.
-- L.A.


I think that I have seldom seen
a message lovely as a tree:
A tree whose branching form is best
has leaves enough that classes nest
But not so many intertwined
that classes scatter to the wind.
Upon this structure codes may form
which are no longer than some norm.
A perfect message minimum
may code this lovely tree sublime.
But messages from fools like me
will code a most unbalanced tree.
-- William Ockam Kilmer (MMLxxi - ?)
(Charles Twardy after Joyce Kilmer)

Mensch, werde wesentlich,
denn wenn die Welt vergeht,
So faellt der Zufall weg,
das Wesen, das besteht.
Man, become essential.
Then when the world decays,
Coincidence dissolves -
but Essence, that still stays.
-- Johannes Scheffler,
also known as Angelus Silesius
  -- translated by Peter Tischer
