Poetry Readings: "On the Road"

Julia Hartwig - Poet

I'd like to read two poems which are linked to the Holocaust. The first poem is called On the Road.

 

The oldest trees

are in the Jewish cemetery

 

A crow

cantor struck speechless

does not sing

 

In a heavy autumn cloud

they pass by the thousands

over the treetops

 

You who are shut in the palaces of memorials

come out to met them

 

through lashing rain

through lightning

you must go together

 

Those who don't have their own place

who are themselves fire and rain

unite now with you

 

Because it is not yet

the end of their end

it is not the end

 

Taken from 'In Praise of the Unfinished: Selected Poems' (2008) translated, from the Polish, by John and Bogdana Carpenter.
