FORAGING

FORAGING
It's easy to lose us, raggedy children.
Your hands forget they held our hands,

your laps forget we sat on them.
You let our smell go sour.

Bad children, there isn't enough for us.
Where do we belong?

A bird sings in the imagined house.
Tap, tap, let us in.

If we were better, if we were golden,
it could be us there, hopping and singing.

FORRAGEM

É fácil perder-mo-nos, crianças esfarrapadas.
As vossas mãos esquecem que se deram às nossas.

Os vossos regaços esquecem que lá nos sentamos.
Deixas o teu perfume azedar.

Crianças más, nada nos é suficiente.
Aonde é que pertencemos?

Um pássaro canta numa casa imaginária.
Toc, toc, deixa-nos entrar.

Se fôssemos melhores, se fôssemos douradas,
Talvez nos deixasse entrar, esperançadas, a cantar.

by Christina DUNHILL, in "Poetry Review", Volume 103: 1, Spring 2013
