Written in the Rain

If we were bees
 who can feel the sun
 through the cloudy sky
 who find their way
 to the blossom...

Hilde Domin 


If we were bees
 who can feel the sun
 through the cloudy sky
 who find their way
 to the blossom
 and never lose direction,
 our fields would be forever
 however short our life
 we would seldom cry. 



My heart, this
 for the light.
 of the long gone
 will you raise your head to
 in the dark days?


Translated into English by Elke Heckel and Meg Taylor
