«Sacred Sisters of the Sun» – Poem

Mrs. Dandelionweed, they say

lilac of the ravines and river valleys, I say

 

weed, they say

smile of the asphalt cracks and concrete walls, I say

 

weed, they say

dancing gypsies of the floral wreath, I say

 

weed, they say

four-part song of the goldsmiths, I say

 

weed, they say

sacred sisters of the sun, I say

 

weed, they say

dandelion, I say

 

 

 

Norwegian:

Solens hellige søstre

 

ugress, sier de

ravinenes og bekkedalenes syrin, sier jeg

 

ugress, sier de

asfaltsprekkenes og betongveggenes smil, sier jeg

 

ugress, sier de

blomsterkransens dansende sigøynere, sier jeg

 

ugress, sier de,

gullsmedenes firstemte sang, sier jeg

 

ugress, sier de

solens hellige søstre, sier jeg

 

ugress, sier de

løvetann, sier jeg
