The Smell of Snow

Pia Tafdrup: The Smell of Snow. Poems Gyldendal 2016. Cover: Ida Balslev-Olesen. The poem is translated by David McDuff

The Smell of Snow

The fish catches its food
and itself is caught, has its head
cut off with a cracking sound,
the smell of fish blood rises while
under the knife the fish still twitches.

The light bones and feathers
lie scattered among grass and stones,
where the bird circled in the air,
smelled its way to earthworms in the soil,
before the marten consumed its meal.

On the grassy plains a hungry wolf
goes after the sheep’s bellies and guts,
on the carcasses the ribs
are gnawed away, flies and worms
take care of the last remnants.

In the dust among the rubble of war
the wounded lie,
I recognize the smell,
when an angel breaks its silence.

In the dust among the rubble of war
lie the dead,
victims of a bloody hour, who once
lay in wombs,
must now be placed in the grave
infinitely close to our hearts.

Breathing, collision,
the locations accumulate,
rocks and clods of earth,
the whole world is a crime scene.


Queen’s Gate

Queen’s Gate

Bathing in a drop’s quiet light
I remember how I came into being:
A pencil stuck in my hand,
my mother’s cool hand around mine, it was warm.
– And then we wrote
in and out between coral reefs,
an undersea alphabet of arches and apexes
of snail-shell spirals, of starfish points,
of gesticulating octopus arms,
of cave vaults and rock formations.
Letters that vibrated and found their way,
dizzy over the white.
Words like flat fish that flapped
and dug themselves into the sand
or swaying sea anemones with hundreds of threads
in quiet motion at the same time.
Sentences like streams of fish
that grew fins and rose,
grew wings and moved in a rhythm,
throbbing like my blood, that blindly
beat stars against the heart’s night sky,
when I saw that her hand had let mine go,
that I had long ago written myself out of her grasp.

Queen’s Gate 1998, Bloodaxe 2001, translated by David McDuff

The Earth is Blue

Play, 1991

The Earth is Blue
The earth could be blue, as in Laura’s paintings. And full of love. But love and art are often in conflict with one another despite their common utopia.
Laura is an artist on her way to a breakthrough – and mother of two sons in their early twenties. Laura has lived a life free of obligations, driven solely by what she wanted to do here and now.
But after a love affair with a young man the same age as her sons, her life changes. She fights to unify the three roles of her existence: mother, lover, artist.
In The Earth is Blue a suggestion is made of what happens when the father is absent. What happens when no one dares to be “grown-up”, when no one takes responsibility.

Translated by Thomas E. Kennedy


You stiffen, poisoned by sudden dread
while the day founders and changes color
and the blood behind a steadily rising pulse
spreads pain into the finest vessels
where it flutters around like ash
that a wingbeat lifts above the embers
until the heart that coral tree
acutely blossoming stands still in a cramp,
on the point of drowning in its own blood
For who can go on his way immune
in a city where people live separated
like shards of the same dream
The darkness piercing a stranger
– will the hatred invade you?
Like shrapnel that gnaws into your flesh
far, far from that morning when, new-born
you were blessed by the first light.

Territorial Song 1994, translated by Roger Greenwald
