Kuukausiruno – Month poem

 

Helmikuu – February

”Talvella on omat ilonsa.
Pakkasen raikkaus,
tähtien kirkkaus,
lumen puhtaus.
Talven hiljaisuudessa
sielumme lepää ja uudistuu.”

– Maria Alstedt –

February Twilight

”I stood beside a hill
Smooth with new-laid snow,
A single star looked out
From the cold evening glow.
There was no other creature
That saw what I could see –
I stood and watched the evening star
As long as it watched me.”

– Sara Teasdale –
