At sunrise

Edith Södergran: The Shadow of the Future

People, people,

like the rainfalls from Heaven

I descend to the Earth.

 

My blessed eyes have seen the stars,

I have caught lightnings in my right hand,

the power, the power streams over my lies.

 

Fate puts me at watch at sunset.

Hailed be the vastness around us –

a new day makes its entry.
