Bjørnson, Bjørnstjerne: List to the forest-voice… (Skogen gir sussende… in English)

Portre of Bjørnson, Bjørnstjerne

Back to the translator

Skogen gir sussende… (Norwegian)

Skogen gir sussende, langsom beskjed.
Alt, som den så i de ensomme tider,
alt, som den led da den fantes omsider,
klager i vinden, som rat den med.

List to the forest-voice… (English)

List to the forest-voice murmuring low:
All that it saw when alone with its laughter,
All that it suffered in times that came after,
Mournful it tells, that the wind may know.
