Aino - Illustration by Russian artist Mechev MM || Now my mind is filled with sorrow / Wanders though the bog and stubble, / Wanders weary through the brambles, / Roams throughout the dismal forest, / Till my life is filled with darkness, / And my spirit white with anguish.                         ——Kalevala Rune IV (Crawford translation)
