How Can I Tell...

by Karin Boye

How can I tell if your voice is beautiful.
I only know, that it penetrates me
and makes me shake like a leaf
and tears me to shreds and splits me.

What do I know about your skin and limbs.
It makes me tremble that they  are yours,
so for me there is no sleep or rest,
till they are mine.
