Ekkóhjarta

Ekkóhjarta

Setningarnir eru ravmagn. Elektriskt trampa teir síni risafet á mítt

óvarda hjarta og geva seg av stað út í alheimin; rungandi í innanopnum

sjálvljóðum. Eg vildi ynskt, tú hevði sagt okkurt annað, enn tað tú

segði, men har var eingin ivi. Tín rødd. Mítt ekkóhjarta.


 

Echo Heart

The sentences are charged. Electric they tramp their monstrous feet on my

unguarded heart and go on their way out into the world; rumbling inside hollow

vowels. I wish you had said something other than you said,

but there was no mistaking. Your voice. My echo heart.

Translation: Lív Maria Róadóttir Jæger


 

Cœur écho

Les phrases sont chargées. Électriques, elles piétinent leurs pas gigantesques sur mon

cœur imprudent, pour ensuite se disperser dans le monde; en résonnant

des voyelles creuses. J´aurais aimé que tu dises autre chose que ce que tu as dit,

mais il n´y avait pas d´erreurs. Ta voix. Mon cœur écho.

Traduction : Anna Maja Mortensen


 

 

 

Echohart

De zinnen zijn als stroom. Geladen stampen ze met reuzenstappen op mijn

weerloze hart en begeven zich de wereld in; holle klinkers

galmen. Ik zou willen dat je iets anders gezegd had dan wat je zei,

maar er was geen twijfel. Jouw stem. Mijn echohart.

Vertaling: Roald van Elswijk
