Michael Agricola Day, April 9
The father of the written Finnish language.

The above image is the frontispiece of the “ABC Book”, his textbook for the Finnish language. The text is the beginning of a poem that reads (in language still fully comprehensible to the modern reader!)

Oppe nyt wanha ia noori / joilla ombi Sydhen toori. Jumalan keskyt / ia mielen / iotca taidhat Somen kielen.

In modern Finnish this is

Opi nyt vanha ja nuori / joilla ompi sydän tuore Jumalan käskyt ja mielen / jotta taidat suomen kielen.

or

Learn now, old and young / who have a fresh heart, God’s commandments and the mind / so that you shall know the Finnish language.
