Martinson, Harry: Ängens sång

Portre of Martinson, Harry

Ängens sång (Swedish)

En blommande äng kan beskrivas bara av sina fjärila,
bara rätt besjungas av sina bin.
Att hålla sammans denna tusenflykt
och rätt urskilja biens sång
kan bara de feer som evigt övat.

The Song of the Meadow (English)

A blossoming meadow can only be described by its butterflies,
only properly sung of by its bees.
Fully to comprehend the flash of a thousand wings
and fully to discern the song of the bees
can only be done by those fairies
who from eternity have trained themselves to listen.
