Forefather - Miri It Is (Steadfast)
Another great song by the English band Forefather.
Miri it is while summer ilast
With fugheles song
Oc nu neheth windes Blast
And weder strong
Ei, Ei! What this night is long!
And ich with wel michel wrong
Soregh and murn and fast*
Miri it is 'tween dark and dark
This fleeting stage
'Till we return back to the night
From whence we came
And henceforth our spears take aim
Hope to win eternal fame
Hear our names e'er more
(Thanks to bub for this part) Translates as:
Merry it is, while summer lasts with birds' song...
But then comes the blasting wind & strong weather...
Aye aye, but this night is long!
And I, having been greatly wronged, sorrow & mourn & fast.
