Lehto, Leevi: You (I) (Sinä I in English)

Portre of Lehto, Leevi

Sinä I (Finnish)

Mutta minä kopuloin sinut ja kevättaivaan.
Olen syönyt enkeleitten lihaa, juonut kuun taivaalta,
käynyt unessa Kiinassa ja palannut öiseen keittiöön:
olemaan oman itseni poika ja panemaan kaapin ovet kiinni.

You (I) (English)

But I will couple you with the spring sky.

I have eaten angel flesh, drunk the moon from the sky,

visited China in a dream and returned to the kitchen at night:

to be my own son and close the cupboard door.
