Lune Mattes: White Steps

Vayse trit — White Steps
From Vayse trit (Los Angeles: Palme, 1929-1932), 7.
Translated by Sunny Yudkoff, edited by Miri Koral.

A word cuts and climbs,
Opens the gates of heaven.
And night—
Has suspended a lantern,
The white footsteps of the white prince to light.

װײַסע טריט

,אַ װאָרט שנײַדט און שטײַגט
.עפֿנט די טויערן פֿון הימל
--- און נאַכט
,האָט אַ לאַמטערן אַרויסגעהאָנגען
.װײַסע טריט פֿון װײַסן פּרינץ צו באַלײַכטן
