Show Excerpt

hänet lumituiskussakin
lämmität sa.
Lämpöön runottaret kaipaa,
lämpöön sulottaret kaikki.

Runottaret, tulkaa,
tulkaa, sulottaret!
Tuoss' on vesi, tuossa maa
ja veden ja maan poika tässä,
maan, min yli vaellan
jumalten lailla.

Olette puhtaat niinkuin veden sydän,
puhtaat niinkuin maan ydin,
leijutte ympärillä, kanssanne nousen
veden yli, maan yli
jumalten lailla.



Siunattu ollos, nuori vaimo
ja imevä poika
Suo minun kallioseinää vasten
jalavan varjossa
taakkani heittää,
vierelläs levätä.


Mikä askar ajaa
päivän helteessä sinua
tomuista tietä?
Kannatko kaupungista
Hymyilet kysymystäni,


En tuo tavaraa kaupungista.

Author of the Day

Gen LaGreca
Gen LaGreca is the award-winning author of several Amazon bestsellers that were all written in different genres - or so it seems. Her first book might be a contemporary medical thriller, the second a murder mystery set in the Old South and the third a sci-fi thriller, but they all share similar themes such as freedom, individuality and being ahead of your time. As our author of the day, LaGreca talks about what she calls the "Gen-genre", reveals her writing habits and chats about why she likes to let her books stew a bit before publishing.
