Edward Mackinnon Two Poems
A Finnish Story*

Landless, she worked on the land of a great landlord and his lady
    where the grass was lush and fat cows blinked at the northern light
But she had to walk thirty miles with a fish and a pound of butter
    and having an honest heart she told everyone she met on the way
Searching, please wait... animated waiting image
