Julie, I hesitated to make the title more specific than it is in German, but you are right that unless readers picture the mandorla, they will have no idea of why the almond is being mentioned in the poem. I also was not sure how many readers would know what a mandorla is, but poetry often uses technical vocabulary that readers need to look up if they want to understand the poem completely. Anyway, for now I have changed the title.
