Counsels
By Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804–1877)
 
Translation of Eiríkr Magnússon and Edward Henry Palmer

COUNSELS three the mother gave her daughter:
Not to sigh, and not be discontented,
And to kiss no young man whatsoever.
Mother, if thy daughter trespass never,
Trespass never ’gainst your last-named counsel,        5
She will trespass ’gainst the first two, surely.
