Interview with granddaughters
I have two granddaughters,
one by my son, one by my daughter.
Their names are Hyang-na and Hyang-ji,
I chose the names myself.
Just gone two and just gone one,
they are still tiny mites.
We fix a date
and meet once a month.
When the day comes both
have so astonishingly grown
that it's not a matter of cute tricks,
they merrily lead me such a dance
that for half a day this old granddad
with his white hair and white beard
doesn't know if he's coming or going.
It's like something from a cartoon
I leave it to your imaginations
but anyway, for me those days are
the most immaculate and utterly innocent moments.
