Make me teach me - Mirjam Tuominen

Make me pure
teach me silence
make me whole
teach me new words
words that are not words
words that are like silence
whole pure
not self-abandonment
not accusation
not defence
not thesis
not antithesis
but synthesis.

May life and death
hold each other in balance.

Mirjam Tuominen (1913 - 1967) Finland
Translated by David McDuff
