The Unquiet Grave The wind doth blow today my love A few small drops of rain Never have I had but one true love In cold clay she is lain I'll do as much for my true love As any young man may I'll sit and mourn all on her grave A twelve month and a day The twelve month and the day being gone A voice spoke from the deep "Who is it sits all on my grave And will not let me sleep?" tis I 'tis I thine own true love Who sits upon your grave For I crave one kiss from your sweet lips And that is all I seek "You crave one kiss from my clay cold lips But my breath is earthy strong Had you one kiss from my clay cold lips Your time would not be long." **************************** My time be long, my time be short Tomorrow or today May my gods have all my soul But I'll kiss your lips of clay "You crave one kiss from my clay cold lips But my breath is earthy strong Had you one kiss from my clay cold lips Your time would not be long."

Plenilunio “In tenebris umbris nox Nocte luna stellanti In tenebris umbris nox lux aeterna nocte” The eclipse broke the silence when candles light died, oh mother night, embrace my soul Fires and Incense flies when ritual dance rises oh mother night, embrace my soul

Land of Sorcery Starry skies draw the map Endless woods mark the path My spirit flies My mind visualizes Under the sign of the moon Under the mark of the dark My voice rises My heart synchronizes Rivers born from silver tears and winds brought all our dreams In the memory I'll engrave with fire of earth my land

Helvegen 06:03
Helvegen Eg songane søkte Eg songane sende då den djupaste brunni gav meg dråpar så ramme av Valfaders pant Alt veit eg, Odin kvar du auge løynde Kven skal synge meg i daudsvevna slynge meg når eg helvegen går og dei spora eg trår er kalde, så kalde Årle ell i dagars hell enn veit ravnen om eg fell Du blir løyst frå banda som bind deg Du er løyst frå banda som batt deg

Eleusis Misteriis Lights and shadows dance in the dark Distant voices like a spark Following the secret path It's waiting in a grave of time Silent mist brought mortality touching the shape of the eternity Lights and shadows dance in the dark Distant voices like a spark Eleusis Misteriis in excelsis arcanis Eleusis Misteriis in excelsis arcanis
