poetry

we're studying poetry and so poetry it is.

Two Cities
Tomas Tranströmer

Each on its side of a strait, two cities
the one blacked out, occupied by the enemy.
In the other the lamps are burning.
The bright shore hypnotizes the dark one.

I swim out in a trance
on the glittering dark waters.
A dull tuba-blast penetrates.
It’s a friend’s voice, take up your grave and walk.

- -
from his latest book, The Great Enigma.
para ler e ler, este poeta.
