Christian Morgenstern,
The Banshee (An Approach)


Christian Morgenstern,
The Werewolf

tradukita de Max Knight   tradukita de Alexander Gross
One night, a banshee slunk away   A Werewolf, troubled by his name,
from mate and child, and in the gloom   Left wife and brood one night and came
went to a village teacher’s tomb,   To a hidden graveyard to enlist
requesting him: “Inflect me, pray.”   The aid of a long-dead philologist.
The village teacher climbed up straight   “Oh sage, wake up, please don’t berate me,”
upon his grave stone with its plate   He howled sadly, “Just conjugate me.”
and to the apparition said   The seer arose a bit unsteady
who meekly knelt before the dead:   Yawned twice, wheezed once, and then was ready.
“The banSHEE, in the subject’s place;   “Well, ‘Werewolf’ is your plural past,
the banHERS, the possessive case.   While ‘Waswolf’ is singularly cast:
The banHER, next, is what they call   There’s ‘Amwolf’ too, the present tense,
objective case--and that is all.”   And ‘Iswolf,’ ‘Arewolf’ in this same sense.”
The banshee marveled at the cases   “I know that--I’m no mental cripple--
and writhed with pleasure, making faces,   The future form and participle
but said: “You did not add, so far,   Are what I crave,” the beast replied.
the plural to the singular!”   The scholar paused--again he tried:
The teacher, though, admitted then   “A ‘Will-be-wolf?’ It’s just too long:
that this was not within his ken.   ‘Shall-be-wolf?’ ‘Has-been-wolf?’ Utterly wrong!
“While bans are frequent”, he advised,   Such words are wounds beyond all suture--
“A she cannot be plurized.”   I’m sorry, but you have no future.”
The banshee, rising clammily,   The Werewolf knew better--his sons still slept
wailed: “What about my family?”   At home, and homewards now he crept,
Then, being not a learned creature,   Happy, humble, without apology
said humbly “Thanks” and left the teacher.   For such folly of philology.
