tonyv Posted May 28, 2009 Share Posted May 28, 2009 TULE, ÖÖ PIMEDUS Tule, öö pimedus, võta mind sülle. Minu päike ei tunne mind, öö jäänd mulle. Ainust tähte sääl pole, minul on kole. Varja mu üle. ------------Juhan Liiv Here is my translation of this poem -- COME, DARKNESS OF NIGHT Come, darkness of night, take me in your lap. My sun does not know me, I'm left with the night. No single star, only my misery. Cover me. Juhan Liiv was a famous Estonian poet. His work is excellent. I picked this poem to share first, because it was short and somewhat easy to translate. Unfortunately, my translation does not do it justice.
