quatrain 44

From Sunlight, two versions of quatrain 44:
I pretended to leap
to see if I could live there.

Someday I must actually arrive there,
or nothing will be left to arrive.

version by Coleman Barks

i imagine marching
to heaven drunk
looking for God
if He is to be found
either my feet
must help me
reach my dream
or i'll lose my head
as i've lost my heart

trans by Nader Khalili
