Treasure Island

August Strindberg

(22 January 1849 – 14 May 1912 / Stockholm)

We Waves


WE, we waves,
That are rocking the winds
To rest--
Green cradles, we waves!

Wet are we, and salty;
Leap like flames of fire--
Wet flames are we:
Burning, extinguishing;
Cleansing, replenishing;
Bearing, engendering.

We, we waves,
That are rocking the winds
To rest!

Poem of the Day

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
