The Conclusion of the First Occurence of Planet Earth

Who can say how long is Time? Seven days, seven years or million? But this is known to some: Ilmatar, lovely spirit of the Air, came to be first Water Mother, to Vainamoinen and the fishes, and then Mother Earth, to the soil, hills and rocks. The Plants came to cover the Earth, and then came the creatures to eat them; then finally the Gods wearied of tending to all of this, and created Human-kind, so fiercely fragile, but every ready to exist and persist. And to prepare for these people, the children of gods, Vainamoinen felled an entire forest, leaving but one birch tree for the flying two leggeds, then planted the first fields of grains. And the Great Eagle saw all of this, and said, “It is good.”
