BOREALIS

That red color of the sky
so unusually high
had been talked about as if of a dream
or a strange hint
of rare passersby.
Instead, it was a premonition.

NOORDERLICHT

Van die rode gloed
in de ongewoon hoge hemel
werd gesproken als over een droom
of een vreemd visioen
van schaarse voorbijgangers,
maar hij bleek een waarschuwing te zijn.

BOREALE

Di quel colore rosso
del cielo insolitamente alto
si era discusso come di un sogno
o strana suggestione
di rari passanti,
era invece una premonizione.
