JAN OSKAR HANSEN
A big rock in the field
twenty years of his life
to make it look like a horse
When he gave up
The rock looked as beautiful
As the first day he saw it.
Dream time, lazy and long, is over
It lasted a generation
But was real as life sometimes is repeat.
Came and stole the colours
Home baked bread no more
everything is easy shop bought
and taste of the average.
I now of a woman who stole
Flowers for her sonís coffin
It stood there in the snow
Grave diggers on strike.
But a bouquet of flowers donít
Mind what they were intended for
Rootless and decaying anyway
So let the mother be she didnít
Do anything wrong, just rearranged
Flowers bought in a shop from a grave
The had too many to her sonís
Whose no flora in the world could hide
Hide a motherís grief
