Grook del consuelo

< Piet Hein - Consolation grook

Perder un guante
es desde luego penoso,
pero no es nada
comparado con el dolor,
de perderlo,
desechar el otro guante,
y encontrar
de nuevo el primero.

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.
