NOCTURNE

Silverskira månskenskväll,

nattens blåa bölja,

glittervågor utan tal

på varandra följa.

Skuggor falla över vägen,

strandens buskar gråta sakta,

svarta jättar strandens silver vakta.

Tystnad djup i sommarens mitt,

sömn och dröm, —

månen glider över havet

vit och öm.


Poem by Edith Södergran

NOCTURNE

Moonlit evening, silver clear

and the night’s blue billows,

sparkling waves, numberless,

follow one another.

Shadows fall along the path,

on the shore the bushes softly weep,

black giants guard its silver in their keep.

Silence deep in summer’s midst,

sleep and dream, -

the moon glides out across the sea

white tender gleam.


Translation by David McDuff
