In youth

Gustaf Fröding

From the poetry collection Guitar and Accordion - Moods and Mood Pictures from 1891

The river sparkles so beautifully,
it chirps so funny in the furnace.
Here I lie lazy as a spoiled son
in the lap of my mother nature.
It sings and smells and shines and smiles
from earth and heaven and all I see.

It is, as if the wind a message carries me
of happy days, which are rimmed,
my blood is in turmoil, I think I'm in love
- in who? - oh in everything that breathes.
I wanted all of heaven and earth
lay close to my heart in girl form.
