A poet to his beloved (Finnish translation)

English
A A

A poet to his beloved

I bring you with reverent hands
The books of my numberless dreams,
White woman that passion has worn
As the tide wears the dove-grey sands,
And with heart more old than the horn
That is brimmed from the pale fire of time:
White woman with numberless dreams,
I bring you my passionate rhyme.

Runoilija rakkaalleen

Tuon sinulle kunnianarvoisilla käsillä
Minun lukemattomien unelmien kirjat,
Valkoinen nainen jonka intohimo on kuluttanut
Kun vuorovesi kuluttaa kyyhkysen harmaita hiekkoja,
Ja kanssa sydämen vanhemman kuin sarven
Joka reunasi ajan valkoisesta tulesta:
Valkoinen nainen kanssa lukemattomien unelmien,
Tuon sinulle minun intohimoisen riimin.
 
Thanks!
