Regin Dahl

Regin Dahl died in Copenhagen on this day in 2007. His life marked several.

Tín er degningur
handan líkdampsins flókar.

Dit er morgengryet
hinsides ligdunstens tåger.

Yours is the daybreak
beyond the corpse-reek’s mists.

His father is on a stamp and I would be curious to know more about this man than is known.

When we visited we would eat lamb and speak of the islands further north.

I know the poem quoted here does not truly fit the present circumstance. And yet it does.

Dit er morgengryet. Yours is the daybreak. Morgenens ro.

Axé.
