مطمئنة

< Piet Hein - Consolation grook
من المحزن اضاعة فردة القفازات

ولكن المصيبة الأكبر هي أن تضيع فردة القفازات
ترمي الفردة الأخرى
وتجد الفردة الأولى
في ذات اليوم


Translation by Samer Saad

Losing one glove
is certainly painful,
but nothing
compared to the pain,
of losing one,
throwing away the other,
and finding
the first one again.

Test Yourself

1 Where do you wear your gloves?

On your head?
On your hands?
On your feet?

2 What's worse than losing one glove?

Losing both gloves at the same time.
Not having any gloves to begin with.
Finding it when you've thrown away the other one.

3 Where do you wear your socks?

In the bath?
On your feet?
On your head?
