    You do the foreign poets, translators and readers a grave disservice by not stating who has translated the poems.

A Flame Is In My Blood

A flame is in my blood
burning dry life, to the bone.
I do not sing of stone,
now, I sing of wood.

It is light and coarse:
made of a single spar,
the oak’s deep heart,
and the fisherman’s oar.
