How Can I Tell, An English Rendering Of A Swedish Love Poem By Karin Boye

How can I tell your voice is sweet?
Well, it enters my heart and takes me
off in the air where I dance like a leaf.

What do I know about your body?
Well, you shake me when you are with me
And I get restless till I see you again.

And till I see your body is for me
Always for me, over and over, again.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Hur kan jag säga...

Hur kan jag säga om din röst är vacker.
Jag vet ju bara, att den genomtränger mig
och kommer mig att darra som ett löv
och trasar sönder mig och spränger mig.

Vad vet jag om din hud och dina lemmar.
Det bara skakar mig att de är dina,
så att för mig finns ingen sömn och vila,
tills de är mina.

-Karin Boye

How could I say if your voice is beatiful I just know that it penetrates me, makes me shiver lik a leaf tears me and into pieces What do I know ab ot your skin and your limbs The fact that they are yours just shakes me So for me, there is no rest or sleep until they are mine
