Eg gangi í Tróndargøtu saman við vinum. Luftin er kvirr, eina nátt í august. Uppi yvir okkum í floyalsbláu náttini eru mánin og Norðstjørnan. Ongantíð hevur verið ein klárari stund enn henda. Henda stundin sigur mær, at her hoyri eg heima. Eg eri heima. Hetta er mín ætt.

Walking at night down Tróndargøta together with friends. The air is still, an August night. Above us in the velvet blue night, Moon and the Northern Star glisten. There has never been a moment as translucent as this, a moment that tells me I belong here. I am home. These are my kin.
