Today is The Ides Of March, but the 15th of March falls in a run of other celebratory days: Pi Day, St. Urho’s Day, and of course, St. Patrick’s Day. So today we depart a bit from our usual format with some holiday music, and a poetry reading. The recording of Gene McCavic is a bit unclear, so here’s the text from the definitive St. Urho’s web site.
Ode to Saint Urho
by Gene McCavic and Richard Mattson
Ooksi kooksi coolama vee
Santia Urho is ta poy for me!
He sase out ta hoppers as pig as pirds.
Neffer peefor haff I hurd tose words!
He reely tolt tose pugs of kreen
Braffest Finn I effer seen
Some celebrate for St. Pat unt hiss nakes
Putt Urho poyka kot what it takes.
He kot tall and trong from feelia sour
Unt ate kala moyakka effery hour.
Tat’s why tat kuy could sase toes peetles
What krew as thick as chack bine neetles.
So let’s give a cheer in hower pest vay
On Sixteenth of March, St. Urho’s Tay.
