Unnoticed / Onopgemerkt

the well in the midst of hills
-caressed by wind- it softly echoes
complaints of the unobserved

adrift along the bricks muted by moss
there is a still unnoticed solitude

there a gate restrains the shades
moves to mournfulness
a dungeon of distress
depth that perforates

as long as these slopes don’t level off
the hush-up will yearn on

*

de put temidden van heuvelland
in strelende wind echoot zacht
de klacht van het ongeziene

langs stenen met mos gesmoord
drijft nog immer ongehoorde eenzaamheid

waar een poort de kleuren dempt
in droefenis stemt
een gevangenis van verdriet
diepte die doorboort

zolang de glooiingen niet strijken
zucht het verborgene voort

Ludy Bührs

The topics she writes about are very diverse, so are the poetry styles she applies. As a Dutch translator and poet, having lived in Cambodia's capital city Phnom Penh for 2.5 years, in 2008 she published "Op de ruïnes van een rijk" (On the Ruins of an Empire) ISBN 978-90-8834-483-1 with 60 poems based on her experiences there. In 2007 she received a Certificate of Accomplishment as one of The Best Poems and Poets of 2007 issued by poetry.com and the International Library of Poetry for her poem Choked Truth, her own translation of "Verstikte waarheid", one of the poems in the book. Born in 1956, she still works as an independent translator, translating from English into Dutch. more…
