Edith Södergran: Till Eros

Edith Södergran

(1892-1923)


Till Eros

Eros, du grymmaste av alla gudar,
varför förde du mig till det mörka landet?
När flickebarnen växa till
bliva de utestängda från ljuset
och kastade i ett mörkt rum.
Svävade icke min själ som en lycklig stjärna
innan den blev dragen i din röda ring?
Se, jag är bunden till händer och fötter,
känn, jag är tvungen till alla mina tankar.
Eros, du grymmaste av alla gudar:
jag flyr icke, jag väntar icke,
jag lider endast som ett djur.


A Eros

Eros, tu il più crudele di tutti gli dei,
perché mi hai condotto alla terra oscura?
Quando crescono, le fanciulle
sono escluse dalla luce
e gettate in uno spazio oscuro.
La mia anima non stava sospesa come una stella felice
prima d’esser attratta nella tua corona rossa?
Vedi, sono legata mani e piedi,
senti, sono costretta in tutti i miei pensieri.
Eros, tu il più crudele di tutti gli dei:
io non fuggo, non aspetto,
soltanto, soffro come un animale.
