What it is - Erich Fried

It is nonsense
says reason
It is what it is
says love

It is misfortune
says calculation
It is nothing but pain
says fear
It is hopeless
says insight
It is what it is
says love

It is laughable
says pride
It is frivolous
says caution
It is impossible
says experience
It is what it is
says love

Erich Fried (1921 - 1988) Austria (lived in UK and became a British Citizen)
Translated by Gwilym Williams
