ALEXANDER ANTON VON AUERSPERG
(USED PSEUDONYM ANASTASIUS GRUN)
German poet
(1806 - 1876)

He has no enemy, you say;
  My friend your boast is poor,
    He who hath mingled in the fray
      Of duty that the brave endure
        Must have made foes. If he has none
          Small is the work that he has done.
            He has hit no traitor on the hip;
              Has cast no cup from perjured lip;
                Has never turned the wrong to right;
                  Has been a coward in the fight.
      - a free translation [Enemies]

Singing and rejoicing,
  As aye since time began,
    The dying earth's last poet
      Shall be the earth's last man.
      - The Last Poet [Poets]
