Ukko Schnapps

Ukko, thou O Father of the heavens, Thou that livest high in Ether, Curbest all the clouds of heaven, Holdest in the air thy counsel,

Holdest in the clouds good counsel, From the East dispatch a cloudlet, From the North-East send a rain-cloud, From the West another send us,

From the North-West, still another, Quickly from the South a warm-cloud, That the rain may fall from heaven, That the clouds may drop their honey, That the ears may fill and ripen, That the barley-fields may rustle.

Struck by the god of thunder, Cooled by the north.
