Winter Night by Karin Boye

Sparkling creaking hard crust.
Lonely, lonely is the night sky over white roads.
I am filled with a angry thirst
for the winter sky.

Will you not soon leap up before my foot,
deep earth-cold water that sometimes chilled me,
O strong darkness that
my star conceals?

Then dizzyingly hard and pure
you will drown putrid lies as before you mercilessly did.
Where are you, bitter sea
of ice and truth?

Vinternatt

Gnistrande knarrande skare hård.
Ensam, ensam är nattens rymd över vita vägar.
Mig fyller bister törst
till vinterrymden.

Springer du snart ej för foten upp,
djupa jordkalla vatten, värld som ibland mig isat,
du starka mörker som
min stjärna gömmer?

Då skall du hisnande hårt och rent
dränka ruttnande lögn som fordom du skonslöst gjorde.
Var är du, bittra hav
av is och sanning?
