P1230874The last residue of Finland through the heretical voice of the Kalevala:

So now she steps further down

launched herself upon the waves

on the clear high seas

upon the open expanse.

There came a great gust of wind

from the east nasty weather

lashed the sea to foam whipped it into waves.

the wind lulled the maid

and the billow drove the lass

about the blue main

and the froth-capped waves;

and the wind blew her womb full

the sea maker her fat.
