The subject of Finnish poetry ought to have a special interest for the Japanese student, if only for the reason that Finnish poetry comes more closely in many respects to Japanese poetry than any other form of Western poetry.

In Finland, we learned quite a lot from our own civil war. The wounds were visible when I was a boy, but my generation went into the Second World War and it united the Finnish nation, so I do not see any more wounds.

Finglish

I am from Finland and i speak 'Finglish'!
Because i am learning the English language and,
It always infuses with my Finnish.
I am learning to keep me going but,
I do speak my English like 'Finglish'! !
And i always try to enforce the truth of my peace like,
The subconscious act from my mind to muse up things:
But i am unaware of your love.
Try to keep me informed on this love and,
Try to teach me the English language so that i cam be with you;
For the heavens and the earth do know how i do speak.
Keep me on the tracks of your love and teach me more!
For one day i will learn the English language very well;
And i will be ready to teach you my Finnish language as well.

Ah, Vilka Tider

h, vilka tider!
Paradiset hgrar
Du fr kalla det fantasier
Men nog r det en drm man minns
Drmde en drm, jag minns och jag knner
Vatten blev vin ovh fiender vnner
Mmm, det var hrlight att leva
Allting var fritt s vem skulle sakna
Ngonting d? Nej, paradis, nakna
Var vi som Adam och Eva
h, vilka tider!
Underbara dagar
Roar sig kungligt, mr som en prins
Njuter allt gott som finns
h, vilka tider!
Paradiset hgrar
Du fr kalla det fantasier
Men nog r det en drm man minns
Ingen var sur och ingen var dyster
Var och en var en bror och en syster

travel poem: Finland

vast forested wildernesses
Lemmenjoki National Park
and Oulanka National Park
wings of hawks and eagles

treks among the pines and
lakes in summer
in far north

It's a golden,
sunny season as Finland bursts

into life with an explosion of festivals,
good cheer
and optimism.

the towns are buzzing,
but it's also a time to head for the lakelands
of Mikkeli & around and
Lappeenranta.
