Siinä itki impi illan, kaikerteli kaiken yötä
rannalla vesikivellä, laajalla lahen perällä.
Aamulla ani varahin katsoi tuonne niemen päähän:
kolme oli neittä niemen päässä … ne on merta
kylpemässä!’

Singing all the dirge of Aino.
All that night the weary maiden
Wept and wandered on the border
Through the sand and sea-washed pebbles.
As the day dawns, looking round her,
She beholds three water-maidens,
On a headland jutting seaward,
                                                          ——-Kalevala
                                                                 Neljäs runo (Crawford translation)
