Ingeborg Bachmann: “What Falls Into Place”

What Falls Into Place

Another night. What falls into place
with a lot of sleep and in every sleep,
hold on to it. Some night it will heal you.

Don’t you cry now.

What comes with a lot of days
and in every day,
though you must not cry
if it comes every day,
try to know it, for it will heal you.

Ingeborg Bachmann
