Katherine Mansfield (Кэтрин Мэнсфилд)


The Gulf


A Gulf of silence separates us from each other.
I stand at one side of the gulf, you at the other.
I cannot see you or hear you, yet know that you are there.
Often I call you by your childish name
And pretend that the echo to my crying is your voice.
How can we bridge the gulf? Never by speech or touch.
Once I thought we might fill it quite up with tears.
Now I want to shatter it with our laughter.



Katherine Mansfield's other poems:
  1. Night-Scented Stock
  2. The Secret
  3. Sorrowing Love
  4. A New Hymn
  5. There Is a Solemn Wind Tonight
