The House of the World

The tiny
flower of the candle,
on the table the bread, the wine,
the rose,
the suddenly
whiteness of the open bed ─
eternity
millimetrically
to share with you.

Eugénio de Andrade, Portugal (1923 ─ 2005)

Translation Germain Droogenbroodt

from: “Oficio de paciencia, Poesía Hiperión

 

 

Σπίτι του Κόσμου

 

Το μικροσκοπικό λουλούδι

του καντηλιού

στο τραπέζι το ψωμί, το κρασί

το τριαντάφυλλο

το ξαφνικό λευκό του κρεβατιού

αιωνειότητα

χιλιοστών

που μοιραζόμαστε.
Μετάφραση Μανώλη Αλυγιζάκη//Translated by Manolis Aligizakis

 

Eugénio de Andrade, Portugal (1923 ─ 2005)
