Finnish term or phrase: ja haviän siihen...
another wondering came to me frome finnish verse.Perhaps I don't know the grammar well, but I'm asking for help in translating this one:
"...minä olen se tapahtuma, missä tämä kitaran punertava liekki sammuu
minä olen hahmo johon hetkeksi elöön hulmahtaneen tämän tapahtuman yllä
minä olen hiljaisuus tämän tapahtuman jälkeen
ja häviän siihen"
so it was the last line containing "haviän" that drew me into doubt...whether it's derived from "häviö", and what it serves for in here? Perhaps you'll be kind enough to offer a literary traslation...
Thanks in advance.
