לפעמים נעמד אדם במהלך ארוחת הערב

rilkeולפעמים נעמד אדם במהלך ארוחת הערב
וצועד החוצה וממשיך לצעוד
בגלל כנסייה שניצבת אי-שם במזרח.
וילדיו מברכים עליו
כאילו כבר מת.

ואדם אחר שנשאר בתוך ביתו שלו
ממתין שם בין הצלחות לכוסות,
כך שילדיו יצטרכו להרחיק לרחבי העולם
לעבר הכנסייה אותה שכח.


Sometimes a man stands up during supper
and walks outdoors and keeps on walking
because of a church that stands somewhere in the East.
And his children say blessings
on him as if he were dead.

And another man who remains inside his own house,
stays there inside the dishes and in the glasses,
so that his children have to go far out into the world
toward that same church which he forgot.
