E.E. Cummings, ‘leavje ik Dy’

 
leavje ik Dy
(tsjokte betsjut
wrâlden befolke troch swalkjend
strange kleare feeën

,leavesto
my)ôfstân is dan omtinken hoeden
ljochtjaand mei talleaze dwergen
Fan folsleine dream

leavje wy elk(mijen)
oar,wat wolken dogge of Stilwei
Blommen beliket dan skientme
minder as ús sykheljen

 

if i love You
(thickness means
worlds inhabited by roamingly
stern bright faeries

if you love
me)distance is mind carefully
luminous with innumerable gnomes
Of complete dream

if we love each(shyly)
other,what clouds do or Silently
Flowers resembles beauty
less than our breathing

 

Ut W, 1931
