You looked for a flower – and found a fruit.
You looked for a well – and found a sea.
You looked for a woman – and found a soul.
You are disappointed.
Of all our sunny world
I wish only for a garden sofa
where a cat is sunning itself.
There I should sit
with a letter at my breast.
A single small letter…
That is what my dream looks like.
We are not supposed to know
how miracles happen, –
there is no road to happiness,
no happy one can recall the path
that led him to happiness’s secret door.
Edith Sodergran (1892-1923)
