Echoes of Solitude and Forest Wandering

Original Title : Snø Og Granskog
Poem by

Music from : DARKTHRONE "Panzerfaust" (1995)



Talk about what home is—
snow and spruce forest
is home.

From the very start
it is ours.
Before anyone has told us
that it is snow and spruce forest,
it has its place in us—
and then it is there
the whole, whole time.

Waist-high drift
around dark trees
—it's here for us!
Mixed into our own breath.
The whole, whole time,
though no one sees it,
we have snow and spruce forest with us.

Yes, the hill under snow,
and tree upon tree
as far as you gaze—
wherever we are
we find ourselves
facing this.

And have in us a promise
about coming home.
Coming home,
going out there,
bending branches,
and feeling so it flares in you
what it is to be where you belong.
The whole, whole time,
until it is put out in our inland hearts.
