Now Available -- Salt Ballads
Hyacinth Girl Press is very excited to release our first collection to include translation - Salt Ballads by Brooklyn Copeland and Edith Södergran. The collection is a beautifully flowing fusion of Brooklyn's translations of Södergran's poetry, the original Swedish, and poems by Copeland.

You sought a flower
and found fruit.
You sought a spring
and found the sea.
You sought a woman
and found her spirit—
you are disappointed.
