Listen to Franzén's poem ?newlyweds? as read by Mi Grönlund.
Newlyweds Now the man is sitting, I'm happy at your side, he's deaf to me, just look at you. When a year or a month passes from your happiness, he sits alone reading a book. Now he forgets his glass or looks at your face in wine: but soon you will be forgotten: he won't hear or answer Latin. Don't worry: yes, they like learning, even though they often dream like that. You are still more valuable to him, and he would fall over you. - Frans Michael Franzén Finnish Emanuel Tamminen, 1891.
