It’s the Dream

It’s the dream we carry

that something wondrous will happen

that it must happen

time will open

hearts will open

doors will open

spring will gush forth from the ground–

that the dream itself will open

that one morning we’ll quietly drift

into a harbor we didn’t know was there.

---by Olav H. Hauge from Borealis (March/April 2002), translated from the Norwegian by Robert Hadin.
