Olav Hauge: "This Is the Dream"

This is the dream we carry through the world
that something fantastic will happen
that it has to happen
that time will open by itself
that doors shall open by themselves
that the heart will find itself open
that mountain springs will jump up
that the dream will open by itself
that we one early morning
will slip into a harbor
that we have never known.

"This Is the Dream" by Olav Hauge, from The Dream We Carry: Selected and Last Poems from Olav Hauge. Translated from the original Norwegian by Robert Bly and Robert Hedin. © HarperCollins Publishers, 1995.
