Dage bevæger sig i én retning
ansigter i den modsatte.
Uophørligt låner de hinandens lys.

Mange år efter er det vanskeligt
at afgøre hvad der var dage
og hvad der var ansigter . . .

Og afstanden mellem de to ting
føles mere uoverskridelig
dag for dag og ansigt for ansigt.

Det er det jeg ser på dit ansigt
Disse lysende dage sent i marts.
Days in Late March
Days move along in one direction
faces in the opposite.
Uninterruptedly they borrow each other’s light.

Many years later it is difficult
to determine which were the days
and which were the faces . . .

And the distance between the two things
feels more unreachable
day by day and face by face.

It is this I see in your face
these bright days in late March.
