I have just finished a translation of your "The Witch". I think you'll prefer it to all others. After all, we're family, and have a very deep understanding. And, I used Ezra Pounds method. Also, have you seen "The Milky Way"? It will blow your *(^% off!
head uncovered and whacked out ;
quick, sudden, though stout.
Eves all death to himself;
his clouds overlap the moon.
His push-off-song becomes unglued;
crazy whistles in the tree line too.
The fur trees slap and impale;
Owls choke on the mouse's tail.
Our fishwife coughs and spits;
Out and up where the sky is lit.
Locks swung like vipers;
ablaze in the dead of winter.
By her feet and by her throat;
the clouds go into statues.
