Commentaries, Oceans And Ponds - Poem by gershon hepner

A commentary in poetry some lives,
while others are mere commentaries in prose,
for some an ocean into which one dives,
for others ponds on top of which one rows.

Inspired by 'Is it So? ' by Czeslaw Milosz in 'Road-side dog, ' translated from the Polish by the author and Robert Haas (Farar, Straus & Giroux:

Nothing better can happen than to bid
farewell to one's past life, taken as no more
than a commentary on a couple of poems.
