Þú komst til að kveðja í gær.
Þú kvaddir og allt varð svo hljótt.
Á glugganum frostrósin grær.
Ég gat ekkert sofið í nótt.
Hvert andvarp frá einmana sál,
hvert orð sem var myndað án hljóms
nú greindist sem gaddfreðið mál
í gervi hins lífvana blóms.
En stormurinn brýst inn í bæ
með brimgný frá klettóttri strönd,
því reiðum og rjúkandi sæ
hann réttir oft ögrandi hönd.
Því krýp ég og bæn mína bið,
þá bæn sem í hjartanu er skráð.
Ó, þyrmdu honum, gefðu honum grið.
Hver gæti mér orð þessi láð?

Where to go from here. OK. Some memories of long forgotten days...
Good morning, could I have this shirt cleaned express, please?
Yes, that’ll be three weeks, dearie.
Three weeks? But the sign outside says 59-minute cleaners.
Yes, that’s just the name of the shop, luv. We take three weeks to do a shirt
Just the name of the shop?
Yes, that’s if there’s an R in the month. Otherwise it’s four weeks. Your name does begin with a P, doesn’t it?
Well, no, actually, of course it’s, uh...
Well, that’ll be five weeks, then.
Five weeks? Blimey.

Yes, because of the eurocrisis, and the stricter rules at the banks, we do not changge coins for cigarettes.
Just so you know.
And just now the churchbell strikes eleven. I'm waiting while my wife visits a friend. Taxiservice me.

This exercising-field is empty now. I guess nobody's in for a good workout right now.

And the right half of the rainbow over Reitdiep. The photo shows a second rainbow above this rainbow. It's a very faint ring which I didn't see while I took the picture.
