This could be a never-ending task. Especially if folksongs qualify as poems.
Nevertheless I think these specifically would be good to include, since they are basically folktales / creation stories in sung form:
Estonian: 1. 2
Ingrian: 1, 2
I'm not going to try to list the other folksongs that have been posted for those languages, it would already be too many, I think. But these that I've mentioned above also qualify as "poems" and "tales", so....
Thanks a lot! I just wanted to add some links here "randomly". Of course it's never going to be a comprehensive list.
(Words for "Bon appetit!" next to the language name …)
-- Ingrian / Izhorian Leivaa soola!
-- Karelian Leibü suolu süöjile! / …
-- Veps Leib da sol! / …
-- Votic / Votian Leipä soola! / …
Interesting! Also in Komi:
---- Komi-Permyak Нянь-сов!
---- Komi-Zyrian Нянь-сов! / Нянь да сов!
(Lit. "Bread (and) salt!". In those dialects that have preserved final -л, it's "Нянь-сол!")
