"Black Winter Day" as written by and Peter Green....
This is how the lucky feel
How the blessed think
Like daybreak in spring
The sun on a spring morning

Like the flat brink of a cloud
Like a dark night in autumn

But how do I feel
In my gloomy depths?

A black winter day
No, darker than that
Gloomier than an autumn night

    General CommentThis song's lyrics taken directly from kalevala the national legend of finns...it must be the monologue of aino the virgin after her brother promised to give her to an old bard vainamoinen.

    Song MeaningFrom the language used (almost identical to the Kalevala translation I've read), this is translated from the monologue of Louhi's daughter after being reminded of how her life will change with her marriage to Ilmarinen. This is close enough that there's pretty much no doubt.

    General CommentWow, a truly beautiful song. It's probably suggestive of what many Finnish people live through each day, being that many of them suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder resulting from the dreary weather.

    General CommentThe lucky feel good like light in the spring but he does not feel happy he's depressed more than they are happy.

    General CommentThis song is about the christianization of Finland. *The lucky and blessed* refers to those who have converted to Christian side. The main character in the song remains in his ancestor's religion but still feels melancholic seeing the former myths/glories of his people fading away. Well you can't do anything in an age when wailing ass martyrs are taking the places of saga heroes.
