New Ditty

Denude yourself of prosy clothes, my pretty,
And show your poet-self in some new ditty!

Ja paljasta värssy uudenlainen!

Hey Tero, don't you have too many syllables in the first line?

Hi, I manage to count 10 syllables in the original as well as in the translation. Do you come up with something different ? Regards.

After a second count, I found out that you're right. I have 11 syllables in the first line. Apologies.

No prob. Though I used to work for a Finnish company I have zero knowledge of the language. So my count was even bigger than 11 Wink smile
