lyrics

from 'The Half-finished Heaven' (1962), by Tomas Tranströmer, translated by Robin Fulton.

I stand on the hill and look across the bay.
The boats rest on the surface of summer.
‘We are sleepwalkers. Moons adrift.’
So say the white sails.

‘We slip through a sleeping house.
We gently open the doors.
We lean towards freedom.’
So say the white sails.

Once I saw the wills of the world sailing.
They held the same course – one single fleet.
‘We are dispersed now. No one’s escort.’
So say the white sails.
