TAIVAS NÖYRTYY

Taivas nöyrtyy 

ja ajattelu

ei vie mihinkän 

me olemme aina 

eksyksissä


Poem by Pentti Saarikoski

HIMMELEN UNDERKASTAR SIG 

Himmelen underkastar sig

och tänkandet

för oss ingen stans

vi är ständigt

vilsegångna

THE SKY SURRENDER

The sky surrender

and thinking

get us nowhere

we are constantly

lost


Translation by Ylva Lund Bergner
