lyrics

from 'Secrets on the Way' (1958) by Tomas Tranströmer, translated by Robin Fulton.

Daylight struck the face of a man who slept.
His dream was more vivid
but he did not awake.

Darkness truck the face of a man who walked
among the others in the sun’s strong
impatient rays.

It was suddenly dark, like a downpour.
I stood in a room that contained every moment –
a butterfly museum.

And the sun still as strong as before.
Its impatient brushes were painting the world.
