Poem of the Week, week 18: Hanne Bramness "May"
Enjoy a weekly poem by authors from Norway, throughout the year.
Rain against the café’s tall windows
into the heart
scraping on the glass without a sound
She leans over the table
takes his hand
in the center of his warm palm
a pool of gold
From A Calendar in Colour, Longhouse Publishers & Booksellers, Green River, Vermont, 2011.
Translated by the poet and Anna Reckin
