A MIRROR MIDDLE OF A FOREST



22 pm, after a hot day. A crane singing in the woods. A small duck swimming middle of the high grass. The forest pond is like a mirror.

Summer greetings from a night swimmer.

  10. magic. i don't know if you know swedish, but i came to think of this song that i love, when i saw your post:

    Du lindar av olvon en midsommarkrans
    och hänger den om ditt hår.
    Du skrattar åt mångubbens benvita glans,
    som högt över tallen står.
    I natt skall du dansa vid Svartrama tjärn
    i långdans, i språngdans på glödande järn.
    I natt är du bjuden av dimman till dans,
    där Ull-Stina, Kull-Lina går.

    Nu tager du månen från Blåbergets kam
    att ge dig en glorias sken.
    Och ynglet som avlas i gölarnas slam
    blir fålar på flygande ben.
    Nu far du till Mosslinda, Mosslunda mor,
    där Ull-Stina, Kull-Lina, Gull-Fina bor.
    I natt skall du somna vid Svartrama damm
    där natten och mossan är len.

  11. Oh, so lovely! The trees and the lake and the trees in the lake.

    I used to spend every summer by a lake, swimming constantly. I live beside the North Sea now, which is wonderful too, but quite different.

    Wishing you many happy nighttime swims. And lots of floating and looking up up up at the sky.
