I am looking for the author or collection in which appears the Sami poem: "What the Months Say to Each Other". I found the poem "What the Months Say to Each Other" in a book in the Los Angeles City Library in 1978. I wrote it down, but did not write down the name of the book it came from.

The book where you can find this poem is written by Valerie Stalder. Legends and folktales of Lappland. London/Oxford, Mowbrays, 1972 ISBN 0-264-64582-0
(6. What the months say to each other in Lappland, s. 29-32)

Hope this helps you. The tale about the months is written in many books in Sami language. The very first time it was published by J. K. Qvigstad in: Lappiske eventyr og sagn, 1929.
