Vingar i natten

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Det flyger en fågel svart och stum.
Vem binder hans öde? Ingen.
Han flyger i världens vida rum
med ångestens vind i vingen.

Har ej rede att värma sig i.
Har ej värn eller viloställen.
Min längtan susar skugglikt förbi
din brinnande ruta i kvällen.

Så blek i månskenets bleka ljus
du stryker en dröm från din panna.
Nu sover ditt stora tysta hus.
Mitt öde kan icke stanna.

Det är skyar som fara och flarn
på flykt över dunkla vatten
- vi längtans fåglar, vi orons barn,
vi susande vingar i natten!
