To My Neighbor


I lift you higher,
lift you out
of your body cells
stuffed with anxiety
of your past -
an evil load that smells.

I'll fill each cell
with love and joy
that makes the
angels dance.
You'll glide through earthly
filth and stench -
a spiritual trance.

From your youth filled eyes,
your hands
and feet,
a holy peace shall flow,
so you and I
be filled with grace -
let us be still
and know.

William Hermanns
[P527]

Seelentränen


Seelentränen sind Gedichte,
rot mit Herzblut aufgeschrieben,
tiefem Menschenleid zum Ruhm,

Lies sie still in reinem Lichte,
unbeschattet,
frei von Trieben:
Du betrittst ein Heiligtum.


Wilhelm Hermanns
[G001]

Notable Encounters

Childhood  Adult Life 

William Hermanns had the knack to see whomever he wanted.  His guiding thought was his Vow made on the battlefield of Verdun and the German proverb:  "Don't go to the apprentice;  go to the master."   Geh' nicht zum Schmidtchen, Geh' zum Schmidt !

“Too many religions preach love without justice. As long as there are no decent conditions for all men, as long as religions do not consider that their highest obligation is to create decent conditions for all mankind regardless of what creed, they have degraded love and justice.” Albert Einstein, in Einstein and the Poet – In Search of the Cosmic Man by William Hermanns (Branden Press, 1983, p. 142.)
