English Translation, Translated by Harald Johansson 1650

Great Night

The great winters night

It is a calm night

A fresh bracket of snow has fallen

The air is cold my cheeks are red

I look up at the sky

I see nothing but millions of stars I think to my self, what are the ancient doing tonight.

 

Original Old Ateenian written in Elder Furthark. C. 890
