For Alexandra von Hahn

 

Footsteps trace memories so long ago

To the sidewalks of Eichwalde, once my home

Where fragrant lime trees with dewdrop glisten

The morning’s glory of sunrise risen

Amidst shade trees stood Evangelische Kirche

Its towering rooflines a pinnacle

Reaching the heavens in towering spire

Parabrahm song notes cascading inside

 

Hymnal conveyance would pass window sill

Far reaching the streets of southeast Berlin

Rise above Friedenseiche, amber sunsets

To drift amid clusters of patchwork cloud

A quilt work as tufts of cotton candy

The scents, how they linger from waters by

As moonlight shimmers on Zeutherner See

My footsteps echoing oak tree of peace
