Tiring the heart--
mountains and ocean
too much beauty

scent of narcissi
in the night I hear
your beauty

* * *

narsissien tuoksu
yössä kuulen kuinka
kaunis olet

You still have narcissi? :) Enjoy them :))
I love all the "k"-s in the Finnish version. Sounds like the flowers really call you :)

Thank you, Vida! Something else was lost in the translation as well - in Finnish the last line refers to second-person singular. ;-)

A wonderful juxtaposition, despite anything lost in translation
