Jaan Kaplinski

"Õhtu toob tagasi kõik" (Evening brings everything back)

The snow's melting. The water's dripping.
The wind's blowing (gently).
The boughs are swaying. There's a fire in the stove.
The radiators are warm.
Anu is doing exercises on the piano.
Ott and Tambet are making a snowman.
Maarja is preparing a lunch.
The wooden horse is looking in from the window.
I am looking out of the window.
I am writing a poem.
I am writing that today is Sunday.
That the snow's melting. That the water's dripping.
That the wind's blowing, etc., etc.
