Oi, sanoi siili

olen surullinen siili.

Niin hyvä, kaunis, hellä!

Ja kenelläpä, kellä

on vastaansanomista?

Se vain on surullista

että piikkikuoren alla

tuon siilin hellyys piili.

Part of a poem "Tunteellinen siili" (emotional hedgehog) by Kirsi Kunnas (please give credit to the creator where it's due)... Freely translated:

Oh, said the hedgehog

I'm a sad hedgehog.

So good, beautiful, tender!

And who indeed, who

Will deny it?

It's just so sad

That under the spiky shell

Was the hedgehog's tenderness hiding.
