I AM NOT A WOMAN: Poetry, by Edith Södergran

I AM NOT A WOMAN

edith.1.1

 

I’m not a woman. I’m a neutral thing.

I am a child, a pageboy and a bold decision,

am a ray of sunshine laughing scarlet.

I am a fishing net for all the voracious fish,

I am a glass in honor of all women,

I am a step towards the case and ruin,

am a leap in freedom and self.

I’m the whisper of the blood, in the ear of man,

I am a fever of the soul, the flesh desire and rejection,

I am a nameplate at the entrance to new havens.

I am a flame, looking lively,

I am water, bases, but bold to the knee,

I am fire and water into loyal relationship, and without conditions.

(Edith Södergran)
