Alene for deg
Der braender et lys i natten,
Tove Ditlevsen (orig. Danish)
(fra Pigesind, dikter utkom i 1939)
det braender alene for meg,
og puster jeg til det, saa flammer det op
og flammer alene for meg.--
Men taler du stille, og hvisker du tyst,
er lyset plutselig mere enn lyst
og braender dypt i mitt eget bryst
--alene for deg.--
Some words to live by, from my family in Norway:
Det finnes ikke daarlig vaer, bare daarlig klaer.
And finally, once you've tasted raw herring in the Netherlands, you really
can't ask for anything more (except maybe a fresh stroopwafel for dessert):
Alleen gekken en dwazen schrijven hun naam op de deuren en glazen.
