Quote for Today: Edith Södergran


March 8, 2017 by katmcdaniel


In far-off lands stand the great stones
on which my thoughts rest.
It was a foreigner who wrote the strange words
on the hard board that is called my soul.
Days and nights I lie and think
about things that never happened:
my thirsty soul was once given a drink.
Edith Södergran, Poems 1916
