Tomas Traströmer / The Tree and the Sky

The Tree and the Sky
By Tomas Tranströmer
Translated by Robin Fulton

There’s a tree walking around in the rain,
it rushes past us in the pouring grey.
It has an errand. It gathers life
out of the rain like a blackbird in an orchard.

When the rain stops so does the tree.
There it is, quiet on clear nights
waiting as we do for the moment
