Heidenstam, Verner von: Moonlight (Månljuset in English)

Portre of Heidenstam, Verner von

Månljuset (Swedish)

Jag vet ej, varför jag vaken sitter,
fast dagen ingen glädje skänkt,
men allt i mitt liv, som likt solar blänkt,
och allt, som i mörker och kval blev sänkt,
det darrar i natt i en flod av glitter.

Moonlight (English)

'Tis strange that I sit here in wakeful mood,
Though day has brought me nor joy nor gain;
But all of which ever my life was fain,
And all that was hidden in gloom and pain,
Is trembling to-night in yon silvery flood.
