Dear All,

I am working on a music piece right now and I need those two verses translated into Latin!

I would be eternally grateful if someone could help me with this.
So the verses I need translated to latin are:

"My Gaze is clear like a sunflower
I believe in a world as in a daisy"

Thank you so much

Jug

Don't listen to blatham. Google Translate is terrible.

George is fluent in Latin. I'm sure he will be able to help you.

Thanx but no google translate definitely.
It sounds very wrong with google translate.
I have latin basics, but I need someone with more knowledge to help me with this.

@Jug Markovic,
I don't know any Latin, but daisies aren't clear. Maybe "My gaze is as bright as a daisy"?

@Jug Markovic,
I’m sorry that I cannot offer any help with the Latin; however, I must tell you that the English is quite problematic in that your imagery makes no sense. Sunflowers 🌻 🌻 are not described well as being clear. They can be better described as resplendent or vibrant.

Furthermore. You’ve opened things up with gaze but I’m unclear why and where you’re headed. Do you mean your view, perhaps? Likewise the imagery of the daisy is obscure. I’m unclear what is trying to be conveyed by this.

Translation of this prose verse might suffer until the English is cleared up. My aim is not to be critical but offer some sort of guidance to help the process.

I think I see the problem. The OP didn't add a Latin tag to the post, or put Latin in the subject line.

George probably didn't even notice the thread. I'll PM him.

@Jug Markovic,
"My Gaze is clear like a sunflower

Obtutus oculorum est clarus sicut helianthes
Credo in mundum sicut in bellidem
