Eg spurdi

hjálpirótina

hvat eg fekk gjørt

so hon treivst betur hjá mær

hon bað meg tosa

um pápa

um allar men í urtagarðinum

***

I asked

the rose root

what I could do

so that it would thrive in my surroundings

she asked me to talk

about my dad

about all the men in my garden

Translation: Beinir Bergsson

J'ai demandé

à l'orpin rose

comment faire

pour qu'il s'épanouisse mieux chez moi

il m'a prié de parler

de mon père

de tous les hommes dans le jardin

Traduction : Inès Jørgensen et Malan Marnersdóttir

Ik vroeg

de rozewortel

wat ik kon doen

zodat ze het meer naar haar zin zou hebben

ze vroeg me over mijn vader

te vertellen

over alle mannen in de tuin

Vertaling: Roald van Elswij
