Kalevala CAL - Part 22 - Marjatta
The berry picking season is almost at its end. So let's celebrate the day of Swedish culture! It is in Finnish calendar today, and Swedish is also our second official language in Finland. Typical Swedish things that we Finnn people like are for example the royal family of Sweden, Swedish detective fiction, our mutual ice hockey games and pop icon Abba. We like to send our warmest greetings to our much beloved neighbour!

Calling to the lonely maiden:
"Come, O virgin, come and pluck me,
Come and take me to thy bosom,
Take me, tinsel-breasted virgin,
Take me, maiden, copper-belted,
Ere the slimy snail devours me,
Ere the black-worm feeds upon me."
(Kalevala, Poem 50)
