GOD JUL! / Merry Christmas!


2. Juledag i hagen

Det er rødt over fjellene.
Frostrøyk henger lavt
i grantrær
blant 
glaserte hustak.
Et forlatt lekestativ,
nesten urørlige husker
og snødekte sklier.
Det flammer i rosa og lyseblått
over vesthimmelen
Bare brutt av de sorte silhuettene
av nakne frukttrær.
Gatelysene er ennå slukket
men
kvelden er nær.



Second day of Christmas
in my back yard.

The sky is red behind the mountains.
Frost in the air
among spruce trees
and ice glaced roofs.

Forgotten toys,
motionless swings
and snow covered slides.

Flames of baby blue and red
are on the western sky
only broken by the black
silhouettes of
fruit trees.

The street lights are still out
but
night is soon falling.




Alle fire barna på julaften
