TO GRETA THUNBERG / Poem by Joanna Svensson

Poem by Joanna Svensson

 

TO GRETA THUNBERG

Greta – you are
Like a newborn star
– of hope

Born in the bitterdark reality
A reality that is about to turn pale
A reality that is about to vanish

You with your warm feelings
And your solicitude of our planet

You dare to protest
And fight with strong words
against powerful men

You refuse to accept
That the trees are singing
Their swansong
You refuse to accept
That the winds are dancing
Their dance of death

You have seen
That heaven is crying
And sheds its tears of pity
Over our existence

You, Greta, are
Like a newborn star
– of hope!
