“Bir kayıkta iki kişi

biri hakimdir yıldızlara,

diğeri ise fırtınalara,

biri yıldızları takip eder,

diğeri fırtınalardan geçer,

en sonunda

mavi hatırlayacaklar denizi.”

Reiner Kunze, 1933, Alman şair ve yazar Aşk üzerine dokunaklı bir şiir. İki aşık, her birinin gücü ve yeteneği farklı.  Birlikte hayatın güzelliklerini (yıldızları) keşfederler ve yaşamın getirdiği güçlüklerin (fırtınalar) üstesinden gelirler. Yaşananlar her neyse sonunda  iki aşığı bir birine bağlayan anılarıdır (mavi deniz).

    Orijinal German text / Almanca kaynak metin:

    Rudern zwei ein Boot,
    der eine
    kundig der sterne,
    der andre
    kundig der stürme,
    wird der eine
    führn durch die sterne,
    wird der andre
    führn durch die stürme,
    und am ende ganz am ende
    wird das meer in der erinnerung
    blau sein

    English translation:

    Two rowing
    one boat.
    The one
    knows the stars,
    the other
    knows the storms,
    the one will
    guide through the stars,
    the other will
    guide through the storms
    and in the end, the very end
    the sea in the memory will
    be blue

    Reiner Kunze, 1933, German poet and writer, translation John Irons

    A wonderful poem about love. Two lovers with different competencies and strenghts. Together they experience the beauties (stars) of life and hand in hand get over the difficulties (storms). Whatever is lived, at the end they have their memories (blue sea), which make them a couple.
