It's the Dream - Olav H. Hauge, A Norwegian Poet

I love those poems of hope, that you don't have to analyze, just enjoy.  Simplicity is the shiniest jewel in a song.  Here is a beautiful poem by Olav Hauge, a celebrated poet from Norway.

It's the DreamDrops in the East Wind, 1966

It's the dream we carry in secret
that something miraculous will happen,
that it must happen –
that time will open
that the heart will open
that doors will open
that the rockface will open
that spring will gush –
that the dream will open,
that one morning we will glide into
some little harbour we didn't know was there.
