Friendship Fortnight 2020: Uit de Kast

ff20x

This is the third selection shared by Maitreyi Kaptijn, which she summarises as “friendship with a book.”

 

 

Uit de Kast

by Kate Schlinmann

 

vriendschap is een plankje
in een boekenkast,

waarop mijn mooiste liefste boek
het meest bekeken en het vaakst
eruit gepakt,

tussen alle ongelezen vrienden
het beste past.

 

From: Dichter over Friendschap, Plint, 2018.

 

Google Translate’s effort:

friendship is a plank
in a bookcase,

on which my most beautiful sweetest book
most viewed and most often
taken out,

among all the unread friends
fits best.
