ERNST LISSAUER
German poet, author, essayist, dramatist and publisher
(1882 - 1937)

At the Captain's mess, in the Banquet-hall,
  Sat feasting the officers, one and all--
    Like a sabre-blow, like the swing of a sail,
      One raised his glass, held high to hail,
        Sharp snapped like the stroke of a rudder's play,
          Spoke thee words only: "To the day!"
      - Hassgesang gegen England,
        (Song of Hate against England) [War]

We have but one, and only hate,
  We love as one, we hate as one,
    We have one foe and one alone.
      [Ger., Wir haben nur einen einzigen Hass,
        Wir lieben vereint, wir hassen vereint,
          Wir haben nur einen einzigen Feind.]
      - Hassgesang gegen England,
        (translated by Barbara Henderson, in the "Nation", Mar. 11, 1915
        [Hatred]
