Primo Levi Holocaust Poem: Buna
by Primo Levi
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Mangled feet, cursed earth,
the long interminable line in the gray morning
as Buna smokes corpses through industrious chimneys...

Another gray day like every other day awaits us.

The terrible whistle shrilly announces dawn:
"Rise, wretched multitudes, with...Read More

In the swaying middle of a dangerous voyage
To climes of far sunnier look and ripening age, 
I often fight the doubts of a death-daring wreck;
Questioning the exact wisdom of my lonely trek. 

Not that I midway could my courses amend,
Nor...Read More

What do you do on a rainy afternoon as this?  
Nowhere to go, really, 
Unlike the little cars and big rigs humming by down the rural highway outside the window
Competing with the lighter and heavier downpours of this storm...Read More

Premium Member On the First Day of Spring
In not too long, we’ll see the spring,
for winter will have lost its cling!
Across this earth, we’ll waken to her sweet rebirth.
On the first day of spring, give praise and sing!

Rejuvenate; refresh; rejoice!
Welcome her with the gladdest noise –
In meadows...Read More

Premium Member Her soft hands
Her soft warm hand holds up the umbrella, 
Holds it above my mind,
Protects me from the wind and rain, 
Protects me from the wild,

Thoughts and words uttered in silence, 
Uttered from way up high,
Falling toward me like drops of ache,...Read More

Premium Member I Am the Daughter
My father is not the biological father of my siblings
So I am the bridge, I am the link in the family
I, alone, carry his blood, so it is
all the more poignant, and painful that
I am the daughter who disappoints

It was springtime
And the clouds shed their sombre, steely garb
And revealed a softer, lighter hue
The flowers stretched,
Unfolded their petals
And displayed to the world their radiant bloom
Life stirred again after a hundred days of winter slumber
And the sky was filled with...Read More

Premium Member DUSTY OLD ROAD

One night
When I was tired, scared and sad
And the sun was low
I went out for a walk
On a dusty old road
Here was my refuge, my shelter
Nature on both sides lay
Tranquil, motionless
Not warm, not cold – indifferent
The clouds drooped with weight...Read More

Sun rays lavishly surrounding
Emphatic in fact FANTASTIC!
Oh My GOD!
I'M joyous!

Completely clear 
Clearing the air with happiness
Happiness is delicious
Oh boy! What a joy!

Non-fictitious it's all real
There are no underhanded deals.
I've come of age.
Turn the page, no games

Shift the anger...Read More

It's time for the warmer and sunnier spring weather
Which brings out young girlies in their shortest shorts ever
Must watch my heart

You could knock this old bird over with a feather

The vast ash-leaden clouds are in tears again...

The soggy tears like boxing fists - casting bruise 
and blues below. Unlike yesterday where they
mirror gentle caress to branchlets and blossoms
smiling in gratitude as they are showered free,

Baby we need to talk

When night ends, the fog begins
Heavy as lead!
Shrouding the town:
Once grand
And home of grandeur.
The grand mansions
of old times!
Now in ruins: off white!
Harboring the ghosts of 
The grandeur!
Who would have lived in a house 
Like this?
My mind wanders;
The eye of my...Read More

Tomorrow I'll Excersise
Okay that's it
I finally quit
I've had my years of fun

Clear in my sights
Fat will soon be on the run

Getting in the gym
The doors won't fit my butt double wide

So in disgrace
I plaster my face

A Planetary Ruler
O! Sunnier than the sun is my love’s shine,
Her radiance gives birth to jocund mirth.
More lunatic in prowess fixed to pine,
Her aspect crazes more than pale moon’s dearth.
More martial in her count’nanced iron will,
Her courage braves the fields of warring...Read More

Exit from Rock Bottom

Man-Made Seasons
One silent tear rolled from my eye
I wondered why, still wonder why
The Source and I graced windows to the world
Same silhouette of branch stood slumbered

I rose, stepped to face east, with
Its bright and morning star
I stood still, speechless
Then saluted what...Read More

Vanity thy name is woman,
Quoth not Hamlet about her domain.

The vanity of a woman no stir can hear,
Which to her heart she forever holds dear.

Truth and honesty broke many a home,
A life in deceitful bliss enriches her dome.

Ignorantly rests vanity...Read More
