How Words Play, War

“The Cry” by Mirjam Tuominen.

There is a cry in the forest
I want to go home
The keys have fallen
The paths have disappeared
I cannot go there
I am badly frightened
I have frightened myself very badly
They have frightened
I have frightened
I want to go home to the dolls there at home
Home to the stove the fire the hearth.
