The Poem „Northern Lights“ in English by the Icelandic poet Jóhannes úr Kötlum:
I sat one night and beheld
the depth of the sky
and my eyes slowly submerged
in the darkness of the night
I wanted to remove the darkness
and see the clearness behind
and perhaps then my pupil was
the wishing stone
I wished to defeat the darkness
and see through it
for some desire for better life
still burned in my veins
I desired more and more light
into my weakened soul
I desired a spark from God himself a spark that no deception was
Then suddenly ignited
the lamp of wonder‘s fuse
Behold, God‘s bright flares
as they start to play
They rushed through the vastness of space
and pushed the dark away
and lightning fast colour swipes
lit up the earth
They illuminate the Lord‘s glory
that no mortal language can
the holy closeness of the sky
had already found my heart
And my tired soul rested there
with the bright river of life
and momentarily took all in
those northern lights
Then the child within me smiled
and the brightness became my shield
and I heard beating the heart of the Lord
then life and death seemed gone
I saw at lamp of wonder‘s light
at lightning speed that
from countless such moments
is eternity made
Translation by Haraldur Vilhjálmsson
