My Aunts Analysis

Author: poem of Adam Zagajewski Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

Always caught up in what they called

the practical side of life

(theory was for Plato),

up to their elbows in furniture, in bedding,

in cupboards and kitchen gardens,

they never neglected the lavender sachets

that turned a linen closet to a meadow.

The practical side of life,

like the Moon's unlighted face,

didn't lack for mysteries;

when Christmastime drew near,

life became pure praxis

and resided temporarily in hallways,

took refuge in suitcases and satchels.

And when somebody died--it happened

even in our family, alas--

my aunts, preoccupied

with death's practical side,

forgot at last about the lavender,

whose frantic scent bloomed selflessly

beneath a heavy snow of sheets.

Don't just do something, sit there.

And so I have, so I have,

                    the seasons curling around me like smoke,

Gone to the end of the earth and back without sound.

Translated by Clare Cavanagh
