HE STEPPED INSIDE MY DOOR

Let me know right away
if I’m disturbing you.
he said
as he stepped inside my door,
and i”ll leave the way I came.

Not only do you disturb me,
I answered,
You turn my whole world
upside down.
Welcome.

Eeva Kilpi (1928- ) Finlanda

INTRÂND PE UŞE

Spune-mi drept
dacă te deranjez,
m-a întrebat el,
intrând pe uşe,
şi o să plec imediat.

Nu numai că mă derajezi,
i-am răspuns,
dar mi-ai întors întreaga lume,
pe dos.
Bine ai venit!
