"Tulpaner" by Agnes Gerner

Jag lyfter in morgonen

innanför nattlinnet,

en valp eller ett människobarn,

någon att trösta

och frihetsberöva,

ett sömnigt

hulkande djur

Swedish poet Agnes Gerner has published a new collection of poems entitled "Tulpaner" (Albert Bonniers Förlag, 2024).

It is a collection of poems about life and survival, about motherhood and motherlessness, about a birth that emphasises a loss.

The book cover is illustrated with a pastel painting by Åsa Magnusson.


Björn Kohlström (teacher of Swedish and English literature at Per Brahegymnasiet in Jönköping) has recently published on his blog Bernur a review of Agnes' collection of poems.
