"Tam Lin" meets Finnish love song where I've changed both for my own story. Another contribution to MachinUWA IV that focuses on Soror Nishi's enchanted trees, both at the UWA art galleries and at her Boogaloo" sponsored by Split Screen. Tributes go as well to:
Briawinde Magic (who furnished the "thought wings" for the mortal woman--on display at the UWA galleries for November);
Bryn Oh's Inventor's Laboratory at her installation The Path;
Cherry Manga's "Aerie" at Per4mance MetaLES, and whose "Bird in Love," and several other pieces there, were exhibited at the UWA art galleries originally;
Claudia222 Jewel's lush world at The Path;
Rebeca Bashley's "Inferno" sponsored by LEA in October 2011;
Scottius Polke's giant Chemical Lab at The Path.
I was enchanted by the song by Laura Ryhanen featured on Simon V's Digital Christmas Album. The story does not represent the lyrics... entirely. And it finds something sinister in a region that isn't. But I heard in the song something more ominous than its short lines relate, and put everything together in two magic trees: Soror's and Cherry's.
Here's what I made of the song with the help of Qvaark and Ander's expertise in Finnish:
I, a maiden, sing and pray
For you the last verse that I say.
Love sends many to the grave
If the one you love you cannot have.
