From Gerhard Meier's Das Gras grünt

                                          Schlaflos

Die Zeit schlägt Stunden
in das Blei der
Nächte

Und auf dem Grunde
liegen sie in
Steinkorallen
Uhren um die
Handgelenke

Schlaflos horchend
ihrer Zeit
die Stunden schlägt
ins Blei der Nächte

Und Schwärme roter
Unruh zucken durch
Korallen


My translation:

                                        Sleepless
 


Time strikes hours
into the lead of the
nights

And on the bottom
they lie in
stone coral
watches 'round their

wrists

Sleepless listening
to their time
strikes the hours
into the lead of the nights

And swarms of red
unrest convulse through
coral
