Rúfus, Milan: Ante Scriptum (Ante scriptum in English)

Portre of Rúfus, Milan

Ante scriptum (Slovak)

Čo som to stratil už?
A čo vždy ešte stretám
z toho, čo prešlo cez náš dom?

Vždy ešte tu
a stále ešte nie Tam –

nad matkou Zemou na dotyk nízko lietam
jak lastovičky pred dažďom.

Ante Scriptum (English)

What is it that I’ve already lost?
And of those that already passed through our home,
which do I meet again?

Always still here
but not yet there

I fly low over mother earth, a touch away
like a swallow before the rain.
