  • porter angel of the 2nd heaven


Text: "Every Rose" by Zelda
Translation: John Zorn

every rose is an island
of the promised peace,
eternal peace.

within every rose dwells
a sapphire bird whose name is “veitetu*”.

and it seems
so near
the light of that rose,
so near
its scent
so near,
the silence of its leaves,
so near
that island-
take a boat
and break through that sea of fire.

כל שושנה היא אי
של השלום המבטח
השלום הנצחי

בכל שושנה מתגוררת
צפור ספירית
“ששמה ”וכתתו

כה קרוב
אור השושנה
כה קרוב
כה קרוב
שקט העלים
כה קרוב
אותו אי -
קח סירה
וחצה את ים האש

translator's note: "veitetu" (lit. "and they shall beat") references "and they shall beat their swords into plowshares." (Isaiah 2:4)
