Explanation

Ach, Mutter,
This old, black dress,
I have been embroidering
French flowers on it.

Not by way of romance,
Here is nothing of the ideal,
Nein,
Nein.

It would have been different,
Liebchen,

If I had imagined myself,
In an orange gown,
Drifting through space,
Like a figure on the church-wall.
