"¿Dónde están tus padres?

¿Dónde tus abuelos?

¿Cuántos amigos te quedan

de la infancia?

 

La generación que todo lo tuvo fácil

tiene hoy pocas cosas que elegir.

 

Con qué devoción olvidamos

aquellas canciones del exilio."

 

[Del poema "Canción del abuelo", incluido en el libro "Caramelo culebra" (La Bella Varsovia)]

***

Where are your parents?

Where your grandparents?

How many childhood friends do you have left?

 

The generation that had it all easy

Has now little to choose from.

 

How devotedly did we forget

Those songs of exile

Translation: Gonzalo del Puerto

[From the poem “The grandfather song”, included in the book “Caramelo culebra” (Ed: La Bella Varsovia)]

“Où sont tes parents?                         

Et tes grands-parents?                       

Combien d’amis te reste-t-il               

de l’enfance ?                                

 

La génération pour qui tout a été facile   

aujourd’hui a peu de choses à choisir.      

 

Avec quelle dévotion avons-nous oublié

ces chansons de l’exil ?”

 

Traduction: Anne Casterman

 

[Extrait du poème « La chanson du grand-père », inclus dans le recueil « Caramelo culebra » (La Bella Varsovia)]

“Waar zijn je ouders?

Waar je grootouders?

Hoeveel vrienden heb je nog

uit je kindertijd?

 

De generatie die het voor de wind ging

heeft nu maar weinig keuze.

 

Hoe toegewijd vergaten we

de liederen van de ballingschap?”

Vertaling: Bart Vonck
