Tuulen tunto

Tuulen tunto (The feel of the wind), performed by Värttinä.

Värttinä performs music based on traditional songs of Finland, Karelia, Ingria, and other Finno-Ugric areas of Europe. Many of their songs are magic charms to heal physical or emotional problems. This is a traditional lyric set to new music. It’s from the album Iki, recorded in 2003.

Here’s the lyric, and my rough English translation:

Tuulen tunto

Kun tulloo tuulinen ilma
huudan tuulta turvakseni
huudan tuulta turvakseni
viileää viimaa vierelleni
Niin tulloo tuulinen ilma
huudan tuulta turvakseni
mielen mustan muuttajaksi
synkän syämen sytyttäjäksi
Kanna kaihoista syäntä
syksyisen yön sylihin
Nyt on miula mielessäni
mennä tuulta tuntemahan
jok on tullu taivahasta
päältä pilvien puonnu
Kanna kaihoista syäntä
syksyisen yön sylihin
Pois on menny miun osani
katehissa kohtaloni
Tuntemassa tuulen teitä
tuulen tuiman tiettävissä

Kanna kaihoista syäntä
syksyisen yön sylihin
ylähällä taivosessa
tähtitarhojen tasalle

The Feel of the Wind

When the weather is windy
I call the wind to protect me
I call the wind to protect me
the chill wind around me
When the weather is windy
I call the wind to protect me
to change my dark mood
to light a spark in my dreary heart
Carry my aching heart
to the arms of the autumn night
Now I have a mind
to go and feel the wind
coming down from heaven
from up above the clouds
Carry my aching heart
to the arms of the autumn night
My share is gone
my destiny hidden
feeling the route of the wind
the severe ways of the wind

Carry my aching heart
to the arms of the autumn night
up into the skies
up to the garden of stars

  2. Thanks a lot for your translation. I fall in love with this song. Wartinna is a great “animal” group. I’m starting to thing about Finnish lessons. Zbynek
