A Steed Has Carried My Beloved Away

Sing to me of how, my wild white swan,
I can love him so much.
Sing of how, my wild bird, snow white swan,
I can love him so much.
He's been gone just like a wild white swan,
the one I love so much.
Blown away like snow, like a snow white swan,
the one I love so much.
 
Feathered steeds are sailing high above
and the moon casts its light
On them sailing slow and high above
in the sea of the night.
And his steed seemed like a falling bird
descending out of sight,
And my jolly bird has flown away
just as far out of sight.
 
A steed has carried my beloved
away to a distant land,
So much cared for, so much loved
has gone to a distant land,
And his silver helmet's now
as far as this cold moon,
Just as far it's now as this
white frozen silent moon
 
And a snow white bird would only know
that I love him so much
And a snow white bird would only sing
that I love him so much
Come and sing, my white bird, sing of how
one can be loved so much
Sing forever ever more of how
one can be loved so much
 
The steed, the steed, the steed
has carried my beloved
away to a distant land.
The steed, the steed has carried my beloved
away to a distant land,
away to a distant land
 
Thanks!
