DET SKARPE V

På stranden er der

Fuglespor en tidlig morgen

Det skarpe v er så energisk

Som den kølighed

Der omgiver hende på

En strand der kun er hendes

Et hav hun ikke bader i

En himmel som hun bare

Lader stå med sine skyer

I disse morgener

Er hun en anden

En kvinde på en strand

Som hører hjemme dér

Som fugletravlhed på en 

Sommermorgen


Poem by Juliane Preisler

THE SHARP V

On the beach there are

Bird traces an early morning 

The sharp v is as energetic

As the coolness

That is surrounding her on

A beach belonging only to her 

A sea she does not swim in

A sky she just

Lets be with its clouds

These mornings

She is another

A woman on a shore

Who belongs there

As busy-birds on a

Summer morning
