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.

David Niall Wilson has had experiences in real life that can rival anything you would find in a novel. It is a good thing too, as the stories he collected while walking these strange and interesting paths has shaped him as a writer. David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
