Munch-Petersen, Gustaf to the earth

to the earth

now, mother -,
I have covered my face into your bosom *

-
now, mother -,
I can have rest a short time, completely -
now, mother -,
my eyes are closed upon yours, closed too -

mother -,
you gave me the power of giving the comfort
which alone is nourishing *

and bright -
but, mother -,
I would only once give, what you have given me,
and not being forced to take back my gifts as hitherto *
for the sake of your purity -, my mother -

but now,
mother -,
my eyes are closed upon yours, closed too -
now, mother -,
I can have rest a short time, completely -
