The Unwritten Poem - Poem by Koyamparambath Satchidanandan

I am the poem
no one has written yet.
I traveled up to
the fingertips of many poets
but retreated to the dream
like unexpressed love
as I was without script.
I am not afraid of language
as long as it has a future tense.
One day I will find my words:
a wonder-struck child
will see a sail
unfold and rise slowly
on a vacant page
under a new star.

(Translated from Malayalam by the poet)
