Entrench your heart.
Outwit your wrath.
Cast off your hope.
Conceal, at once, your thoughts
Translated by Ruth and Matthew Mead
Heinz Winfried Sabais’s poetry first appeared in English translation by Ruth and Matthew Mead in 1968. Reviewing Generation and other poems in Tribune, Richard Burns wrote: ‘Whether he is concerned with public statement or private emotion, Sabais reveals himself as a commanding spokesman for individual conscience and personal commitment.’
