1949If instead of being hanged by the neckyou're thrown insidefor not giving up hope

in the world, your country, your people,if you do ten or fifteen yearsapart from the time you have left,

you won't say,"Better I had swung from the end of a ropelike a flag" --

You'll put your foot down and live.

It may not be a pleasure exactly,

but it's your solemn dutyto live one more dayto spite the enemy.

Part of you may live alone inside,like a tone at the bottom of a well.

But the other partmust be so caught upin the flurry of the worldthat you shiver there insidewhen outside, at forty days' distance, a leaf moves.

To wait for letters inside,

to sing sad songs,

or to lie awake all night staring at the ceilingis sweet but dangerous.

Look at your face from shave to shave,

forget your age,

watch out for liceand for spring nights,and always rememberto eat every last piece of bread--

also, don't forget to laugh heartily.

And who knows,

the woman you love may stop loving you.

Don't say it's no big thing:

it's like the snapping of a green branchto the man inside.

To think of roses and gardens inside is bad,

to think of seas and mountains is good.

Read and write without rest,

and I also advise weaving

and making mirrors.

I mean, it's not that you can't passten or fifteen years insideand more --you can,as long as the jewelon the left side of your chest doesn't lose it's luster!May 1949
