T. Carmi (1925 – 1994)
Defect and Dream

My left hand lies under your head
My right carving out a scratch;
You were promised to me in defect and dream,
Without any pity, without any grace.

Our springtime was eager, impassioned,
Our ending afflicted by fall:
My left hand lies close to your breast
My right carving out a scratch.

From out of white nights and their fragrance,
We drew near one another in grace:
Our springtime was eager, impassioned,
Our ending afflicted by fall.

Silent, collapsed lies our tent,
Our music went moldy with fall:
We were promised each other in defect and dream,
Without any pity, without any grace.

מום וחלום

 
שֹמֹאלִי תַחַת רֹאשֵׁךְ
וִימִינִי חוֹרְטָה הַשָּׂרֶטֶת:
אֹרַשְׂת לִי בְּמוּם וַחֲלוֹם,
בְּלֹא רַחֲמִים, בְּלֹא חֶסֶד.
 
הָיָה אֲבִיבֵנוּ לָהוּט,
קִיצֵינוּ נְגוּעַ־שַׁלֶּכֶת:
שֹמֹאלִי צְמוּדָה לְשָׁדֵךְ
וִימִינִי חוֹרְטָה הַשָּׂרֶטֶת.
 
מִלֵּילוֹת לְבָנִים וּבָשְׂמָם
קָרַבְנוּ אֵלֵינוּ בְּחֶסֶד:
,הָיָה אֲבִיבֵנוּ לָהוּט,
קִיצֵינוּ נְגוּעַ־שַׁלֶּכֶת.
 
אָהֳלֵנוּ קָרַס וַנִּדֹּם,
צְלֵילינוּ עָבְשׁוּ בַּשַּׁלֶּכֶת:
אֹרַשְֹנוּ בְּמוּם וַחֲלוֹם
בְּלֹא רַחֲמִים, בְּלֹא חֶסֶד.
