MY HANDS: Paruyr Srak

April 07 , 2020

These hands, our hands!
Ancient and new hands!
 
What if these hands didn't do it ...
How did these hands dance during the wedding?
What a grace!
Dreamy!
 
What if these hands didn't do it ...
These hands did not go out until dawn.
When is the firstborn born?
Feed her fair milk.
 

What if these hands didn't do it ...
These hands were taken care of
By the silence of the sea,
With patience!
 
What if these hands didn't do it ...
These hands have become a clear pillar of heaven,
So that the pillar of his house does not collapse:
The son will return home from the fight.
 
What if these hands didn't do it?
These hands have become a grandmother's hand,
These hands, crossed with strength,
But having found new strength with his grandson ...
 
These hands have turned stone, they have moved a mountain ...
What, what, what these hands are not worth:
Gentle hands,
Holy hands!
 
... Let's kiss like boys today
Born and raised in the world,
Winning and keeping us in the world,
Never satisfied with us,
Dust cleaner - washer,
Endless Judge - Endless Worker
These hands,
Let it be cracked and hardened,
But for us like silk
My hands ...
