Even when all small answers build up to
Protection of my spirit, still I hear
Big answers striving for their overthrow.
And all the great conclusions coming near.

Poetry in Translation (CXXXVI): Edith SITWELL (1887-1964) – “Answers”, “Răspunsuri”

Edith SITWELL (1887-1964) – “Answers”, “Răspunsuri”

I kept my answers small and kept them near;
Big questions bruised my mind but still I let
Small answers be a bulwark to my fear.

Răspunsuri mici păstrez mereu discret
Ca să nu-nfrunte grijile prea mari
Deşi răspunsuri mici răman în piept.
