Digte av Øverland (Op. 5 )


Burst out to-night,
red lily of my pain !
You have obsessed my being and my brain.
You drank my dream
your thirst was never slaked.
Your mouth is sore
From blood you drank galore.
Burst out to-night.
Bring fragrance to my empty well,
empty and deserted.
Burst out to-night,
Lily and storm and stars !
