translation of another poem by J.J.Wecksell

The Diamond in the Snow

On the blinding snow drifts
there is a diamond glistening serenely.
There never was a tear, a pearl
of higher sparkling lustre.

Her brilliance like of heaven
comes from deep and secret longing,
as she casts her glance towards the sun
when it comes rising in full glory.

As that warming beam strikes at the snow,
the diamond starts melting in her adoration,
kissing the light sun beams in her fondest love
to gradually dissolve in tears.

O, gracious fate to love
the highest beauty life can offer,
and to sparkle in the blinding glory of the sun,
to die in the fulfilment of her loveliest moment!
