from The Kalevela, “Poem 42” (lines 65-79) trans. Francis Peabody Magoun, Jr.

Steadfast old Väinämöinen got his harp,

sat down to play, began to play beautifully.

Everybody starts to listen to that, to marvel at the joyous music,

the men in a good mood, the women with laughing mouths,

men with tears in their eyes, boys on their knees on the ground.

The people grew weary, the country folk get worn out;

all the listeners fell asleep and the onlookers sank down;

the young slept the old slept to Väinämöinen’s music.
