Year upon year, change – / Endings and beginnings – memories, expectations! / We know the past – roughly. / What lies in store – all invisible. / Year upon year, the same certainties – / Suffering, misery, death, scandal – hopes and dreams! / Infinitely human, / Beautiful melodies, songs – and blows, violent and evil! / Year upon year – the sun sets, the sun rises. / Nature goes from grey to colour, silently eloquent! / Life grows, life wanes – / Eternal cycle – will it continue? / Year upon year, change – / New grows old, old fades to renewal. / Ever and ever again – hope and disappointment! / Life goes on – carry the flag forward! / How long will the wind yet blow? How long will the flag yet fly? (Dieter Rexroth)
