Laučík, Ivan: March incantation (Marcové zariekanie in English)
Marcové zariekanie (Slovak)
Nech vypovie sneh
March incantation (English)
Let the snow say
in the needles of a pine
what is still an embrace...
Let sunny nights also be included in the news!
Let the silence not forget us
as we do not forget a little flame
left in a cave!
I write to you from a future emptiness
already fixed in this moment and from an uncertain place on the maps:
Here I conjure the windy night
not to snuff out our candles
when the March stars must fizz out.
