The Tree and the Sky

By Tomas Transtromer


There’s a tree walking around in the rain

it rushes past us in the pouring grey.

It has an errand.  It gathers life

out of the rain like a blackbird in an orchard.


When the rain stops so does the tree.

There it is, quiet on clear nights

waiting as we do for the moment

when the snowflakes blossom in space.
