Gustaf Munch-Petersen: Night

Silent rain falls
through the night –
Over the other coast
the storm shrieks –
Here the rain falls silently –
From a grey sky
invisible in the night
the raindrops fall
on houses and fields and boats,
and on the rocks by the sea –
And make everything wet
in the stillness of the night –
From the other side of the island
the shrieks of the storm are heard
faintly –
