Tranströmer, Tomas - from Schubertiana



Type of spiritual experience


A description of the experience

From Schubertiana

I go home through warm woods where

the earth is springy under my feet,

curl up like someone still unborn, sleep, roll on so weightlessly

into the future, suddenly understand that plants are thinking.

How much we have to take on trust every minute we live in order

not to drop through the Earth

The source of the experience

Tranströmer, Tomas
