Odemarkens Son - Vintersorg

Vid attelkullans horg, i sangarmod och dyrkan
Av jordpuls bliver adlad en avskorlig vildmarkskung
En urtidskraft nu skanker den slagfardiga styrkan
Till vist och myrar med aska uti hjartat
Dimmans foljeslagare trader pa florygg skor
Han skadar skandad mark, nu sinnet bliver svartat
En sjalaklagan starkare an jattars kor

[Ref:]
Odemarkens son - fran majestatiska nord
Odemarkens son - svor en ed till sin fosterjord
Odemarkens son - med stormens rost hors hans strof
Odemarkens son - omskaldad naturfilosof

Resan fortskrider, ledsagad av sin egen skugga
Over stenbackar och rosen mot fjarran horisont
Frihetsgill i sjalen, men medlen aro njugga
Fast rikedom ar vyn, och fodan i hans naverkont

For langvaga vindar och regnbagens harmoni
I vordsam bugan
Han tamjer dess vassen med folflig magi
Dar klippblock ar sjalvaste sockenstugan

[Ref:]

Lavformationer pa halstam och rot
En fagnad monumental
Eldfasrningsboner invid bergets fot
Hors i hans madrigal

[Ref:]
Odemarkens son - hoglandets profet
Odemarkens son - besitter utmarkens hemlinghet
Odemarkens son - vid attekullarnas horg
Odemarkens son - han ar omnamud som Vintersorg

[English translation:]

Son Of The Wilderness

By the altar of family grave mounds, in singing mood and worship
An avskorlig2 wilderness king is ennobled by the earth's pulse
Now a primodial power gifts the quick-witted strength
For wise and aged mind, hidden in young body
Along willow thickets and bogs with thunder in the heart
The mist's companion walks on frail sedimental ridge
He beholds violated land, now the mind blackens
A soul lament stronger than giants' choir

Son of the wilderness - from the majestic north
Son of the wilderness - swore an oath to his native country
Son of the wilderness - with the storm's voice his verse is heard
Son of the wilderness - extolled nature philosopher

The journey proceeds, accompanied by his own shadow
Over stone hills and mounds towards distand horizon
The joy of freedom in the soul, but the means scarce
Though richness is the view, and the food in his birch bark haversack

For distant winds and the rainbow's harmony
In respectfull bow
He tames its being with folkloric magic
Where boulders is the parish cottage itself

Son of the wilderness - from the majestic north
Son of the wilderness - swore an oath to his native country
Son of the wilderness - with the storm's voice his verse is heard
Son of the wilderness - extolled nature philosopher

Lichen formations on hollow trunk and root
A monumental delight
Fire-prayers3 at the mountains' foot
Are heard in his madrigal

Son of the wilderness - the highland's prophet
Son of the wilderness - posesses the outland's secret
Son of the wilderness - by the altar of the family grave mounds
Son of the wilderness - he is mentioned as Vintersorg
