Burst out to-night
English translation © BH & AV

Burst out to-night,
red lily of my pain !
You have obsessed my being and my brain.

You drank my dream
your thirst was never slaked.
Your mouth is sore
From blood you drank galore.

Burst out to-night.
Bring fragrance to my empty well,
empty and deserted.

Burst out to-night,
Lily and storm and stars !


Ludvig Irgens-Jensen

Paul Ludvig Irgens-Jensen was a Norwegian twentieth-century composer.
