About Yelling Rosa

I desing home pages. In my spare time I read, write, play the guitar and hike. I have published three verse books in Finnish and recorded my songs. You can listen to them on YouTube. I have translated some of my poems on Yelling Rosa's Weblog. I also like to watch movies. Olen kiinnostunut lukemisesta, kirjoittamisesta, kitaransoitosta ja luonnossa vaeltamisesta. Olen julkaissut kolme runokirjaa ja laulujani on äänitteillä. Voit lukea runojani Yelling Rosan kotisivuilta ja kuunnella laulujani YouTubessa. Olen elokuvafriikki.

  2. Lovely little poem and I do like the translations underneath and the fact that the words in Finnish are very different from almost any other language. What an usual and rare language it is!

      Thank you for your nice words.
      Finnish is not even an Indo-European language. It is a very nice and charming language but only 5 million people speak it and the digital translators can’t translate it at all because of its 15 cases. I would like to use it but poems are not very popular nowadays. Nobody gets many readers from only 5 million people. Did you know that JRR Tolkien was very interested in Finnish language and mythology by our national epic The Kalevala, where he has taken motives to his books. You can read more about the subject here.
      Take care😉

    How beautiful are your verses. The woman is compared to a rose, such as your name.
