DERES ORD

Jeg ser de lette skyer 

Jeg ser den lette sol

Jeg ser hvor let de tegner 

Et endeløst forløb

som om de føler tillid

Til mig der står på jorden 

Som om de ved at jeg

Er deres ord.


Poem by Inger Christensen

YOUR WORDS

I see the light skies

I see the light sun

I see how easy they paint

An endless continuum

As if they feel trust

To me standing on the ground 

As if they know that I

Am their words
