I eit ustøtt morgonminne
skimrar det ein blomelund,
og ein venn eg ville vinne
var keisar der, ein kaut kalkun.

Han var vond og han var fri,
nebbet hans var flammeraudt,
for åra fire fekk eg svi
han eg dyrka, såg meg snautt.

Ikkje dropsa, sjokoladen,
ananassafta dei bar fram,
kunne trøyste meg for skaden,
eg som visste om mi skam.

Så er ho her med same styrke
barneskamma, sorga lei:
du den vonde, du eg dyrkar –
stolt svarer du meg: «Nei!»

Ei krusing er livet, alt passerer,
han stilnar, kjærleikens taifun,
og eg eit smil på deg spanderer
slik eg hugsar min kalkun.

Manlius was thrown down, / The ruling few preserved their wealth, / Their power remains as dour, / As the Tarpeian Rock itself. / / Like the waves Rome was roughing, / Cries were cutting through the gloom, / But the man was gently laughing, / Falling down to meet his doom. / / ...

The Red Sea

Greetings, Red Sea, shark soup, / Negro bath, sand cauldron! / Like stone cactus flowers / limestone, not moss, blooms on your cliffs. / / Sea-monsters swept up by the tide lie dying / in anguish, out on your islands / in the burning sand: octopi, tritons, swordfish. / / From Afr...

The Sick Man

Only one thing torments my delirium: / how certain sharp lines go on for ever, / and a bell rings and rings and rings / like a clock marking off eternity. / / Just so, after death, / eyes stare into darkness / (the agonized hope of resurrection) / trying to see familiar visions. / ...


This country could have been paradise: / it’s a den of fire. / We've been advancing for four days, / we’ve not eaten for four days. / / In this strange, bright hour / we don’t need earth’s bread: / the Lord’s Word / is better nourishment. / / The b...

The Cathedral at Padua

Marvellous, and sad - yes, that’s what this temple / is - a joy, a temptation, a threat. / Eyes exhausted with desire / bum in the slits of confessional windows. / / The organ melody rises, falls, / then swells fuller and more terrible, / like blood in dark church-granite veins ...
