Munch-Petersen, Gustaf the foreboding

the foreboding

the glowing stone of nobility
is the eye -
through the jet-bright gate
of the eye goes
the irresistible stream
of the male-ruler's straight command -,
piercing merciless
the shells of poisoned resistance -
through the soft-opening mouth
of the eye does
the forcing-creative stream of submission
penetrate unheeding -
the new nobility,
which is to save the world's
heart and womb
to man,
is older than the died-away
nobility that failed -
the new nobility
must have
both the black blood-silent origin and
the tenderly redeeming future
in its eye -,
the glowing stone of all nobility -
