  8. Poetry for an Album

    footnoteswithinfootnotes:

    Feelings my friend
    wrote Schumann
    are stars which guide us
    only when the sky is clear
    but reason is a magnetic needle
    driving our ship on
    till it shatters on the rocks

    It was when my palsied finger
    stopped me playing
    the piano that calamity
    came upon me

    If you knew every cranny
    of my heart
    you would yet be ignorant
    of the pain my happy
    memories bring

    Carnaval time for the children
    with friends dressed up
    as Ormuzd and Ariman
    fleecy clouds of gold
    melting in the pure ether

    For years now I’ve had
    this same whistling
    sound in my ears
    and it troubles me greatly

    Walking by the Rhine
    I know I shall steer
    for the North I have yearned for
    though it be colder there
    even than the ice on
    geometry’s intersecting lines

    W.G. Sebald, transl. by Iain Galbraith (via whatokay)

  14. Lullaby

    Birth I gave you in a desert
    not by chance,
    for no king would ever hazard
    its expanse.

    Seeking you in it, I figure
    won’t be wise
    since its winter cold is bigger
    than its size.

    As you suck my breast, this vastness,
    all this width,
    feeds your gaze the human absence
    it’s filled with.

    Grow accustomed to the desert
    as to fate,
    lest you find it omnipresent
    much too late.

    Some get toys, in piles and layers,
    wrapped or bound.
    You, my baby, have to play with
    all the sand.

    See that star, at terrifying
    height, aglow?
    Say, this void just helps it, eyeing
    you below.

    Grow accustomed to the desert.
    Uniform
    underfoot, for all it isn’t,
    it’s most firm.

    In it, fate rejects a phantom
    faint or gross:
    one can tell for miles a mountain
    by a cross.

    Paths one sees here are not really
    human paths
    but the centuries’ which freely
    through it pass.

    Grow accustomed to the desert:
    flesh is not —
    as the speck would sigh, wind-pestered —
    all you’ve got.

    Keep this secret, child, for later.
    That, I guess,
    may just help you in a greater
    emptiness.

    Which is like this one, just ever-
    lasting; and
    in it love for you shows where
    it might end.

    Grow accustomed to the desert
    and the star
    pouing down its incandescent
    rays, which are

    just a lamp to guide the treasured
    child who’s late,
    lit by someone whom that desert
    taught to wait.

    Joseph Brodsky
