For TSGIAODK

Igår var det sommer, i dag er det to skridt
tilbage og himlen trænger sig på som den grå
uhåndterlige stemme der lover os nattefrost, tåge,
april og børnene løber i zik-zak og slås, for alt det
vi lærte dem holder slet ikke stik: der er ingen orden
og den mands ansigt jeg hang ved i går
erindrer jeg nu som intetsigende nyt fra Ritzaus Bureau:
man vågner og ingenting smager af andet end to
temperamenter der løber i zik-zak og smadrer hinandens
løfter, for enkelte timer, uden påviselig grund, at falde
i hak: jeg sidder taknemmelig i en bus og det er det hele
værd: barndommens skuffelser, ungdommens hidsige
fremdrift i pant for fem klare, ensomme aftner hvor man pludselig
kender sig selv på travet og tilgiver meningsløsheden alt.

San Nakji for President!

what language is this?
happy to see kannada on your current language list.

San Nakji said...

This is Danish.... Yup, working on my Kannada!

I'm not quite sure what this says. I tried it in my translator and it makes no sense.

Can you tell us the story?

Hi San Nakji
I'm really flattered that you're having a blog entry directed to me... representing the exquisite Danish language spoken by the largely number of 5,3 million people!
And hopefully more to come?... At least just one more? (Somebody please help me teach Space Nakji the wonderful language of Denmark:-)
Anyway... thanks for introducing me to the nicely written poem by Naja Marie Aidt...I wonder how you found this poem in particular;-)

I am glad you read it.... ;-) I would love to learn Danish, so when you convince Space Nakji to do it, I will practise with her! I read a couple of pieces in translation and I liked this one... Sorry Ori, I can't remember where I found this now!!!
