Swedish Microverse

The storm has calmed
the lights continue
to flutter




Stormen har lagt sig
ljusen fortsätter
att fladdra








Every half hour
in the silent night
the neighbour’s cuckoo clock



Hel och halvtimme
i den tysta natten
grannens gökur







A country road
beneath a starry sky
a radio tower twinkles



Landsväg om natten
under stjärnklar himmel
blinkar en telemast





Have to hug you
he cries - bends down
to hug my dog




Måste få krama dig
ropar han - böjer sig ned
och kramar min hund




All four poems are reprinted from the anthology Snowdrops avaiable at
