About this blog

Eino Leino's poems are among the most famous in Finland. Here are my own translations of them from Finnish language to English.

If you don't know how to read poems or have lost touch with how to read them so that they touch you and make lots of sense, try reading old Japanese book by Basho, who wrote long stories with short poems in between about the same subjects just handled in the story. I learned reading poems from them. In the first time I after them read Finnish translations of old Chinese poems and continued to ordinary Finnish language poems.
