The fog horn sounds
On the misty moor
a lantern dies

 

Mistluren tjuter
I dimman borta på heden
slocknar en lykta

 

thaw
in the rain gutter
a chickadee bathing

 

snösmältning
i takrännan
badar en talgoxe

 

Öyvind Helgesson’s stories and poems tend to have to do with existence in the northern part of Sweden, where he has spent most of his time.
