This book, Vita syrener by Daniel Fallström, contains the poem Marion. The other night I translated it from swedish to English – but backwards, from bottom to top, from left to right. I made some small adjustments, bending words and making nine lines instead of twelve.
Herb yard in winter beginning flickering flake-flower
Dust earthly she by continuation as fairest

I have stolen a leaflet from an archive; En minnesskrift 1920-1960, Örnsköldsviksortens konsumtionsförening, containing this image. This would render me a place in hell unless I find a way to balance the scales and bring order back. Maybe somebody can steal a leaflet from me – just not this particular one.
