don't speak to me

Gustaf Munch-Petersen: The Lowest Country

so quiet

so quiet –

don’t speak –!

 

very very carefully

I must tread,

if I am to find anything –,

and alone I must go,

if I am to find anything –

 

yet I have found nothing –

I have neither

found my house

or my beloved

or my fields –

they must be

a place, I have not yet been to –

I have already been walking for a long time –

perhaps I have a long way yet

to walk – |

 

and all alone must I go

and so terribly careful

must I go,

if I am to find anything –

but I have to

find a place to be –

 

I’ve got to have a home somewhere –

I know,

that I have my house

and my fields somewhere –

my beloved can’t wait forever –

I have already been walking for a long time –

don’t speak to me –

if I have too long to walk yet,

it may become too late –

 

quiet – quiet –!

I must

find my home –
