The stone (fredrik vahle)

The stone

The stone

Once upon a time there was a stone,
has neither head nor leg.
He saw the people whet,
he saw people rushing
and often saw her thinking
contort her head,
and he saw some bumping
and stumble over yourself
and thought: What is the meaning of such a life??
Man always wants to go somewhere else.
Just why . Question mark,
it is for stone softening.
I am always here and never there
and smaller than America.
I am a part of this world,
and where i am,
there is happiness.

Then came the little Mattias Bacon
and threw it away in a high arc.

The stone flew away .
In a nice arc .
And said when he landed:
I’m always here and never there!
And then whispers very quietly:
What are we stones wise.
