Poem: Pimeä yö vaihtuu aamuksi

On keskitalvi ja lunta sataa
yö on juuri tulossa aamuksi
vielä on hiljaista ja rauhallista
odotellen aamuliikenteen alkamista
minä ja minun pöytälamppuni
yksin vain tässä pimeässä yössä
kirjoitellen mitä mieleeni tulee
muistikirjani täyttyy epämääräisesti
tässä hiljaisuudessa, pimeässä yössä
odotellen aamun tuloa.

According to google translate:

There is a middle winter and snow rains

the night is just coming for the morning

Still being quiet and calm

waiting for the morning traffic to begin

me and my desk lamp

alone in this dark night alone

writing what comes to my mind

my notebook fills vaguely

in this silence, dark night

waiting for morning arrival.

As a choral singer, we did a song based on the old Finnish poem, “Armottoman Osa”, which was so much fun. Your poetry reminds me of that day.

Thank you for sharing!

I found something on Youtube, ‘Armottoman osa’

Yes, that’s the correct song!
Wow, it’s been so long since I have performed this.
