My parents are both from Finland. I've gone there to be with family, 116 of them, and enjoy it tremendously every time!

Oh, Suomi dear
Nothern lights shine
Many lakes dot  your land
Mid Summer's bon fires
A celebration grand

Amongst the birch
An elk does roam
The cuckoo bird calls out
Hedgehogs so sweetly
Wobble by
A holy swan swims 'bout

Then comes the sauna's
Cleansing steam
Sacred to everyone
Some songs are sung while
Sima's sipped
Enjoying midnight's sun

That homemade mead has allowed you to write this little romp through Finland. Thank you. I enjoyed.

You have captured the essence of Finland here, with an affectionate voice...I'd love to try some sima...sounds lovely!...

This is a poem of a place that seems so close yet so far away...Suomi (Finland) beautiful rhythm in this piece.
