kuidas saada jälile armastusele?

 

see on lihtne –

tuleb tirida süda rinnust välja

asetada kaalule

 

ja veenduda, et süda oleks

ühtaegu

                        raske ja kerge


 

***

how do you track down love?

 

it’s simple –

pull your heart from your chest

place it on a scale

 

and make sure the heart is

both

            heavy and light

Translation: Adam Cullen

comment découvrir l’amour ?

 

c’est facile :

il faut extraire son cœur de sa poitrine

le déposer sur la balance

 

et faire en sorte que le cœur soit

à la fois

lourd et léger

Traduction: Antoine Chalvin


 

 

***

hoe achterhaal je de liefde?

 

dat is eenvoudig –

je moet je hart uit je borst rukken

het op een weegschaal leggen

 

en je ervan vergewissen dat het

zowel

                        zwaar als licht is

Vertaling: Frans van Nes
