Robert Graves (1895–1985).  Fairies and Fusiliers.  1918.
 
11. Finland
 
 
FEET and faces tingle
  In that frore land:
Legs wobble and go wingle,
  You scarce can stand.
 
The skies are jewelled all around,        5
The ploughshare snaps in the iron ground,
The Finn with face like paper
And eyes like a lighted taper
Hurls his rough rune
At the wintry moon        10
And stamps to mark the tune.
