Cohen, Leonard: Dar (Gift in Slovak)

Portre of Cohen, Leonard
Portre of Répás Norbert

Gift (English)

You tell me that silence
is nearer to peace than poems
but if for my gift
I brought you silence
(for I know silence)
you would say
This is not silence
this is another poem

and you would hand it back to me.

Dar (Slovak)

Vravíš, že mlčanie
je bližšie k mieru, než k básňam
ale ak by som ti
priniesol mlčanie
(pretože poznám mlčanie)
povedala by si
To mlčanie
je ďalšia báseň
a vrátila by si mi ho.
