Have A Nice Summer

The sun is hanging hot from the sky,
And a light wind carries the smell of freshly cut grass.
Strangely blue sky is admiring itself from the mirror of the sea
And singing of a bird like music can be heard from afar.
I am lying in my sun lounger, all haste has vanished somewhere
And I am measuring time only by watching the flowers grow.
It is vacation now, I taste some wild strawberries with milk
And I think to myself: life is beautiful.

Nice poem. Thank you for the translation. I also watched the Finnish Anthem with intererest. Thanks for uploading.
Midsummer is not celebrated officially over here, nor it is a holiday. I think it should be, though.

That's beautiful. Did you write it yourself?!

Thank you for your kind comments. I did write them both myself. Felt like it.

Wow! I knew this poetry impulse had to come from some place - I'm not adopted after all! See dad, now you're a painter AND a poet. So when do you start wearing a beret and a bow tie? (o.O) (o_~)

Just you wait, I'm coming there!
