Edith Sӧdergran was another devoted cat fan, who unfortunately died at only 31 because of complications from tuberculosis. Sӧdergran is acclaimed as a modernist in Swedish literature as well as a Finnish poet. (Note to self: find more of her work.)
Here’s a small sample:
“Of all our sunny world
I wish only for a garden sofa
Where a cat is sunning itself.”
Excerpt from “A Wish” by Edith Sӧdergran, translation by David McDuff, found on Buzzfeed.
What a lovely mind picture for cold and snowy days …
