Rakoth - The Unquiet Grave Lyrics

  • I am stretched on your grave, and you'll find me
  • there always, If I had bounty of your arms I
  • should never leave you. Little apple, my
  • beloved, it is time for me to lay with you, There
  • is the cold smell of clay on me, the tan of the
  • sun and the wind. There is a lock on my heart,
  • which is filled with love for you, And melancholy
  • beneath it as black as the sloes. If anything
  • happens to me, and death overthrows me, I
  • shall become a fairy wind-gust down on the
  • meadows before you. When my family thinks
  • that I'm in my bed, It is on your grave I am
  • stretched from night till morning, Telling my
  • distress and lamenting bitterly For my quiet
  • lovely girl who was bethrothed to me as a child.
  • Do you remember the nights when you and I
  • were under the blackthorn tree, And the night
  • freezing? A hundred praises to gods that we did
  • nothing harmful, And your crown of maidenhood
  • is a tree of light before you! The priests and the
  • monks every day were angry with me For being
  • in love with you, young girl, when you are dead.
  • I would be a shelter from the wind for you And
  • protection from the rain for you; And oh, keen
  • sorrow to my heart that you are under the
  • earth!
