Lastu lainehilla

Language: Finnish

Mistä lastu lainehilla?
Pilske pieni aalon päällä?
Yksiksensä illan suussa?
Virran vettä vaeltamassa? 

Tuolta lastu lainehilla,
Pilske pieni aallon päällä: 
Pohjan lasten laitumilta, 
Sinitunturin tuvilta. 

Siellä kulta hongan kaasi, 
Veisti, veisti sulho venhon: 
Kohta vierii virran vettä, 
Neittä nuorta noutamaan!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
