Kareva, Doris: [The scalpel and the metronome] ([Skalpell ja metronoom] in English)

Portre of Kareva, Doris

[Skalpell ja metronoom] (Estonian)

Skalpell ja metronoom
mu isa klaveril
enda vahel hoidsid vaikust,
kui ma olin laps.

Nüüd alles, aegamööda,
olen hakanud kuulma,
nende kummalisi lugusid.

Imeõhukeseks ihuvad need aja.

[The scalpel and the metronome] (English)

The scalpel and the metronome
on my father’s piano
kept a silence between them,
when I was a child.

Only now, with time,
have I begun to hear,
their strange stories.

They delicately carve time.
