Goethe - Selected poems - Have you wishes without number
Type of Spiritual Experience
Clay and husk are synonymous in this context and mean the body
A description of the experience
Have you wishes without number?
Watch the promise of the dawn!
Lightly you are wrapped in slumber
Shed this husk and be reborn!
Venture boldly; hesitation
Is for lesser men – when deeds
Are a nobler mind’s creation,
All his enterprise succeeds
