Poem

Posted 01-23-2007 at 07:30 PM by

I found this while I was looking for a poem of a Swedish/Danish woman poet, and I liked it. It's so simple but there is something powerful in it.

"Säg till om jag stör,"
sa han när han steg in,
"så går jag meddetsamma."
"Du inte bara stör,"
svarade jag,
"du rubbar hela min existens.
Välkommen."

- Eeva Kilpi


The translation would be something like this:

"Tell me if I'm disturbing you,"
he said when he came in,
"then I will go immediately."
"You are not only disturbing me,"
I replied,
"you are disturbing my whole existence.
Welcome."

    Ah! Existentialist poetry! Lovely! Even if one chooses to exist in isolation then this is already chosen in relation to others; only a being whose very way of being belongs to other could choose to be alone, or even be lonely.

    Terrific blog, I mean it and not simply in a "you flatter my blog, I'll flatter yours" kind of way. You should update more often.
