Suomalainen kansansävelmä, Finnish folk song.
The loneliness of thy shores are forever in my mind, the lament of the wild duck that is heard in the night. A lonely lost one, cold an miserable a young duckling who has strayed from ist mother. Your grey waves I have watched with weeping eyes, it was there my youth shed its first tears. The image is still vivid and still I miss it, the place where many nights were spent listening to the cry of the wild duck. (transl. Kari Turunen) Instrumentation
