Winter grűßt mich

Avatar Author: Bill Hartzia just another surfer of the sea of dreams, dipping into the waves from time to time and hauling the catch to the shore Read Bio

Der Wind blies kälter
Meine Finger werden blau
Der Winter grűßt mich

Translation:

The wind blows colder
My fingers are turning blue
Winter salutes me

(The last line is literally “Winter greets me” but it’s a syllable too short for a haiku translation. Grűßen as salute is primarily a military usage, but I think it works ok here)

    Bill, just a typo correction it should be “Der Wind blies kälter”
