So Little We Speak of Heaven

Niilo Rauhala‍, Translation: Editors | The Voice of Zion October 2021 --


So little

we speak of heaven.

Our eyes press shut,

darkness fills the room.

Children of prayers lie yet awake,

not playing together –

night’s blanket enfolds

unbearably warm.

So little

we speak of heaven,

though the glow of evening is like

the arm of daylight

yet extended

toward us.


Niin vähän

me puhumme taivaasta.

Silmämme painuvat kiinni,

pimeä täyttää huoneen.

Huokauksen lapset valvovat,

eivät leiki keskenään –

yön peitto kääriytyy

tuskanlämmin.

Niin vähän

me puhumme taivaasta,

vaikka illan kajo on kuin

päivän käsivarsi

yhä ojentunut

meitä kohti.
