RILKE                                         209

Halte mir einer von euch Laffen mein Pferd,
bole mir einer von euch I^umpen mein Schwert:
icb Hess es bei einer Dame liegen.
Lass einer von euch Schurken einen Falken fliegen:
icb mil ibm nachsehn und mich ins Blau verlieren.
Store mich keiner von euch Tieren!

Another Austrian poet, FRANZ KARL GINZKEY (1871- ) weaves
his symbolism into folksong style (Das bewiliche ILautet^ 1906;
Eefreife Stunde, 1916); Ms novels (Jacobus imd die Fralieny 1908,
has autobiographical elements) have the soft sadness of the blue
Danube. Of the Prague group of poets FRIEDRICH ABLER (1857-
1958; Gedicbte^ 1898; Neue Gedichfe, 1899) adapted Spanish dramas,
while HUGO SALUS (1866-1929) in Ehefruhling (1899) lyricized the
intimities of wedlock, proved his mastery of form in a succession
of verse volumes (Ausgewdhlte Gedicbtey 1901) and dreamed a lyric
formlessness into Novellen des Lyrikers (1905).
