A thought dances through mind
while looking out at the sleeping landscape.
Dressed in the cold white and grey
and sung to silence;
embraced by the winter queen.
Branches covered with frosty crystals
which are kissed by the distant bright light
while a crowned moose lifts his head by the forest edge
before he slowly disappears into the white music …
Did Grieg hold his breath first time his fingers touched
the piano and music floated through the air,
like teenagers with a shivering heart holds their breath
waiting for their very first kiss?
Magical moments … the reason why we forget to breathe
