Finland - Kesäaamu (Summer morning)

Kurittula school is very happy to represent Finland in the 2022 contest! This year we were going to prepare something easy and simple. We intended to focus on children’s beautiful singing and introducing the stunning nature of Finland. Our song tells about summer morning. The children are singing beautifully, but the spring has been very late. That´s why we couldn´t make the video as we had planned. It was snowing day after day and the weather stayed cold. This spring has taught us that you can´t prepare for everything that might come your way. Our worries about prolonged winter are, however, outweighed by our concern about what has happened and what is still happening in Europe. Let´s take care of each other and let the music bring joy to all of us!

English lyrics (Translation by Pauliina Kaksonen)

The summer morning is opening quietly, cautiously. 

Birdsong carries you until awakening. 

The summer morning makes you laugh in a tiny way. 

Morning joy starts a strawberry filled holiday!

:,: So, I set off towards the root of the wind, 

towards the big secret of cow parsley. :,: 

The summer morning is waving at a daisy, 

a swallow, a birch, the summer wanderer.

The summer morning lights up a spider web, 

trails in a pine forest, the dreamer’s route.

:,: So, I set off in the direction of the smell of a forest, 

the sway of a bellflower, the scurrying of ants. :,:
