Pan (1924)

Pan

Middagsstillhet och klöverånga.
Ljuset flammar och smälter i ro
över åsarnas långa
kammar, där molnen bo.
Här i backen sitter Pan
lat, med nacken mot en gran.
När han börjar spela,
spela träden, susar säden,
lyssnar hela
jorden till hans kväden.
Livets stora hunger
stiger stark och god,
och mitt sommarblod
sjunger.

Pan

Evening stillness and rising clover-scented steam.
The light flickers and melts away to rest
behind the long ridges of the
hills, where clouds live.
Here on the slope sits Pan,
languorous, with his back against a larch.
When he begins to play,
the trees play too, the wheat soughs,
the whole earth listens
to his airs.
The inordinate appetite of life
rises strong and fine,
and my summer-blood
sings.
