Attend!

The 2nd Drunken Song
(Nietzsche’s TSZ)
“Come!” They all hear the sound of a bell: 
midnight is coming.

One o’ clock!     
O Man! Attend!
 What does Deep Midnight's voice contend?
I slept my sleep,
And now Awake at Dreaming's End:
The World is Deep,
And deeper than day can comprehend.
Deep is its Woe,
Joy —Deeper than Heart's agony:
Woe says: Fade! Go!
But all Joy wants Eternity,
Wants deep, wants deep eternity.
Ding!

Twelve Midnight!
