Dangerous dreams

Edith Södergran: The Land Which Is Not

Don’t go too near to your dreams:

they are smoke and easily scatter in the wind –

they are dangerous and often last.

 

Have you stared deep into the eyes of your dreams:

they are sick and understand nothing at all –

they only live in their own thoughts.

 

Don’t go too near to your dreams:

they are untruth, they ought to leave –

they are madness and they stay.
