Harmafregn


Mig dreymir hið djúpa myrkur,
dagsins renna upp;
og ljómi og ásýnd lífsins,
líða undir lok.

Mig dreymdi fölnuð blóðug blóm,
blómstra sínum dauðadóm;
og gjósttugur vindur gleðisnauðra,
grafa upp myndir úr ríki dauðra.

Mig dreymdi frosinn fölan vanga,
og fálm inn í myrkur, nóttin langa;
og dagsljós var ekki veröld í,
því vonin var brostin,
hið dimmrauða ský.

Hin gullnu laufblöð lífsins,
lágu á víð og dreif.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
