My Tongue Was Once a Worm

My tongue was once an artless worm,
Until thou camest by -
From which time forth, on wings of verse,
'Tis turned a butterfly.
To thee my lady petalled star
Of solid heavens here,
Its spangley dancepath it devours
Where love's bestirrings steer.

Kieli oli mato

Kieli oli mato koruton
Tuloas' ennen -
Ajan riento niin armoton,
Siit' tuli perhonen.
Arvon tähtinen neitonen,
Minulta taivaan saat.
Käy yli odotusten
Nuo rakkauden maat.
