    However, people often think he is a bandit, although he is warmly welcomed most of the time. He suggested that the seventeen year old should go door-to-door like the old custom—just like Luther once did. Let us form a sacred compact: If thou speakest me a falsehood, I will hurl thee to Manala, Let the nether fires consume thee, That thine evil signs may perish. The most common interpretation is that Sampo is a mill that produces money, grain and salt out of thin air. Kullervo was not present When his mother's life departed; May have died upon the mountains, Perished there from cold and hunger. Yet after Kullervo has run away from slavery, he suddenly discovers that his parents, as well as a brother and a sister, are alive.

    Rune as a word is only found in the Germanic and Celtic languages. Young and aged talked and wondered, Well reflected, long debated, How to live without the moonlight, Live without the silver sunshine, In the cold and cheerless Northland, In the homes of Kalevala. Wainamoinen, brave and ancient, Calls aloud in tones of thunder, To the Tuonela deeps and dungeons, And to Manala's magic castle: "Bring a boat, Tuoni's daughter, Bring a ferry-boat, O maiden, That may bear me o'er this channel, O'er this black and fatal river. However, slowly but surely, a rich collection arises… Ten more journeys follow… It takes him sixteen years to travel 20 kilometers by foot or with skis to record folk songs of the Karelian region. If the child is not well nurtured, Is not rocked and led uprightly, Though he grow to years of manhood, Bear a strong and shapely body, He will never know discretion, Never eat. A must read for anyone interested in that period!

    The following notes may help in understanding particular elements of the story. Apparently there are also songs that refer to the "roots" of Sampo, connecting it to the world tree idea. Quick the hero-swords are tested, And the blades are rightly measured Wainamoinen's sword is longest By a single grain of barley, By a blade of straw, the widest. This is possibly the Ur-Example of this trope.

Then the silver Sun he stations In an elm-tree on the mountain. From his forehead drip the sweat-drops, Perspiration from his fingers, Through his labors at the anvil While the Sun and Moon were forging; But the Sun shone not at morning From his station in the elm-tree; And the Moon shone not at evening From the pine-tree's topmost branches.
