JAN OSKAR HANSEN 

Stone Stallion 

A big rock in the field he dedicated 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. ---------------------------------- The Loss 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
