Wislawa Szymborska | Because it was only love / Perché era amore solamente

Cademmo nell’abbraccio,
ci separammo dal mondo,
non sapevamo se eravamo due corpi
o due anime
o un corpo e un’anima
o se semplicemente
non eravamo

Jeff Rowland

perché era amore solamente
e poi solamente fu

la marea d’argento del nulla.

Jeff Rowland

Maria Wisława Anna Szymborska (1923-2012) was a Polish poet, essayist, translator and recipient of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Literature "for poetry that with ironic precision allows the historical and biological context to come to light in fragments of human reality".

Because it was only love

We fell into the embrace,
we separated from the world,
we didn’t know if we were two bodies
or two souls
or a body and a soul
or if simply
we were not
because it was only love
and then only it was
the silver tide of nowhere.

Jeff Rowland
