"SONG A YEAR AFTER MY MOTHER'S DEATH"

"SONG A YEAR AFTER MY MOTHER'S DEATH" 

I allowed a small song
to nestle between my breasts.
It was furtive, a ground squirrel
ocasionally checking the wind.

I thought it could not grow
on wine and despair. It didn't.
On the one sunny day in a rainy month,
it basked.

It took on colour: peacock blue
shimmering like sunlit sea. I feared
it would strut. I watched
it fly forth

afraid of no one
but me.

///

"CANÇÃO UM ANO APÓS A MORTE DE MINHA MÃE"

Autorizei que uma pequena canção
nidificasse entre os meus seios.
Um esquilo, furtivo,
ocasionalmente a controlar o vento.

Pensei que não pudesse crescer
de vinho e desespero. Mas não.
Num dia de sol dum mês chuvoso,
estendeu-se ao sol.

Assumiu a cor: pavão azul
brilhando como o mar iluminado pelo sol. Temi
que pudesse desequilibrar-se. Vi-o voar
em força

sem medo de ninguém
excepto de mim.


by Carrie ETTER (b.1969), American poet, in "The POETRY REVIEW", Volume 104:2, Summer 2014

a thousand eyes look down every day
watching you always ~ come what may
wherever you roam and at any time . . .
watching over you with eyes that shine
a special love has a Mum for her son
likewise its true with son for his Mum
shed not a tear she is a thought away
and listens carefully to all that you say ;-)
