Unschuld [Innocence]

Es lag am Strande,
zur Unerkenntlichkeit zerrissen,
frei vom Gewande
das Lamm, ganz matt.
Denn hören kann doch sein Gewissen
nur, wer ein’s hat,
und wenn es nicht zerschlissen
liegt blutig im Sande.

[Ashore there lay,
beyond recognition,
free of garment,
the lamb, completely dull.
For only those can hear their conscience
who have one,
and if it does not lie worn out
bloody in the sand.]
