Liian Paha Sappi

Description Liian Paha Sappi

The poem Liian Paha Sappi by Aaro Hellaakoski, which tells the tale of a child struggling to keep his temper:

How it burns my sisu
when I have to be quiet
If my will would be fulfilled
the undertaker would get grain.

A little boy has gotten
a temper too bad
This sisu cannot be put out
by even the most snowy Lapland.

This project is unusual in that most of the readers are non-Finnish speakers, and learned the poem phonically.
(Summary by Juho Fröjd and Catharine Eastman)
