EINO STEINSTAD – PAINTINGS

One response

  1. We are close, Lord
    Close and within reach.

    Seized already, Lord,
    clawed into our selves as though
    the body of each of us were
    your body, Lord.

    Pray, Lord,
    pray to us,
    who are close by.

    Against the wind we went there,
    went there to bend
    over hollow and ditch.

    To drink we went there, Lord.

    It was blood, it was
    That which you shed, Lord.

    It gleamed.

    It cast your image into our eyes, Lord.
    Our eyes and mouths stand open and empty, Lord.

    We have drunk, Lord.
    The blood and the image that was in the blood, Lord.

    Pray, Lord.
    We are near.

    –Paul Celan, Tenebrae first published in Sprachgitter (1959) in Gesammelte Werke, vol. 1, p. 163 (B. Allemann & S. Reichert eds. 1983)(S.H. transl.)

    Oversatt av Scott Horton.

    (It was the pope-figure standing in the mist there, that triggered my mind to walk the walk to Paul Celan..)
