Einleikur a regnboga ljod 1989 Steinunn Asmundsdottir.31Quiet and sad
the evening
closes around the little houses
in the sleepy town,
the sweet smell of seaweed
attracts the small
romantic birds
that chirp in the gutters.
The dusk descends
like soft material,
the town wall open

to dreams
allow them

to smuggle into men's souls
and rock them
into blackest night.
