This poem was originally written in Swedish. I have tried to translate it in the best possible way.


I dreamed that I cried
alone in the night

In majestic solitude
the moon slid over water

a loon wails

my heart is empty

A deeply affecting poem, bringing to mind Japanese poetry in its simplicity and its brevity.
