Stephen Crane
In the Desert

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter — bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

סטיבן קריין

רָאִיתִי יְצוּר, עָרוּם, בְּהֵמִי,
שֶׁרָבַץ עַל הַקַּרְקַע
וְאָחַז אֶת לְבָבוֹ בְּיָדָיו
וְאָכַל מִמֶּנּוּ.
שְׁאִלְתִּיו, ״טָעִים, חָבֵר?״
עָנָנִי: ״מַר — מַר הוּא;

עִם זֹאת, אֲנִי אוֹהֵב אוֹתוֹ
כִּי מַר הוּא
וְכִי לְבָבִי הוּא.״
