Cataphonic Translation

20140423-090206.jpg

The poiein feline has committed a felony. Don’t worry, it’s literally a thought crime only. There are only seven days left of this NaPoWriMo!

Estonian Cat

My likes: one vague lull,
my kissing, my licks,
in case you’ll lap it up.
My laconic vanity-
typical! Kickstart-keen.

I lust the jewel cuckoo.
Nigh, nay, nags you see. A lot on land.
Nay, you see: I am one of a kind.
Lie! No, all you pick is peace.

(It sounds even better in the Estonian original, which is copyrighted. I dare you to find it!)
