"»you’re my ivy-leaflet ……..«," Friederike Mayröcker

This week, I've chosen my favorite poem from last year's journal to share for Translation Tuesday. The piece is called »you’re my ivy-leaflet ……..« written by Friederike Mayröcker and translated by JD Larson. The text is available in the original German, as well as the English, below.
