Which is my homeland?

Edith Södergran: The Shadow of the Future

Which is my homeland? Is it the distant, star-sprinkled Finland?

Indifferent. Low rocks, flip over on flat beaches.

I stand on your grey granite as if on certainty.

You certainty, you shall always sprinkle laurels and roses on my path.

I am the god who comes with victorious brow.

I am the blessed defeater of the past.
