Flowering Almond Tree

Like a flowering almond tree, my love so fair.
Sing, oh wind, sing softly for me, tell her how much I care.
                    Original Swedish by Pär Lagerkvist

Quiet Rain

A quiet rain is falling on a silent city, the skies are veiled and hazy.
Oh tender night, quiet melancholy of Spring, so softly cries my heart.
                    Original Swedish by Vilhelm Ekelund

Early Spring

Silhouettes of shining branches hang like glist’ning cobwebs.
In the valley there’s a murmur of a frozen well in February.
