The First Rune of the KalevalaThis wish is what my mind now wills
for me to go and sing,
to spread my words oer wood and hills
this song of ours to ring,
Let hymns of kindred men then fly,
and thawd escape my lip,
they ride my tongue and on it lie
till teeth them broken chip.
My brother dear, my fairest friend,
do come with me today
and let us both these words attend
together all them say,
so seldom gather we so near
upon this lonely plain
as now entwind our paths are here
so let's not go in twain.
So join my hands, your fingers weave,
to sing the good and best,
to hear those golden words this eve
from youthling tongues be wrest,
the same old song that given was
from mouths of ancient gods
the hymns that opened up their jaws
of all those ancient lords:
up from the belt of that great sage,
of Väinämöinen old,
under the forge of the smith-mage
of Ilmarinen bold,
and from the tip of his good sword
of Lemminkäinen fast,
the path was made by his bow cord,
of Joukahainen last,
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
