Synkverv

Horpa den leikar
Lokkar og drar
Nystar deg inn
I hugsnella spinn
Vevar og knyt
I ljodspindel byt
Lyst for vit
Leiker i hugen
Tonar, den eig
Kverve i augo
Løyner og lyg
Lurar deg inn
I bergsalar svinn
I berget er du min
 
Kom inn

Lokker lint
Kvervarsyn
Lyg og løyner
Ljodspindel byt
Lyst for vit

The harp plays
Luring and drawing
Winding you in
In an imaginary spin
Woven and tied
Switched in a poem-spindle
Desire for knowledge
Playing in your mind
Tones themselves
Playing in your eyes
Untruths and lies
Lure you in
In mountain-halls vanish
In the mountain you are mine
 
Come in
 
The harp plays
Luring and drawing
Winding you in
In an imaginary spin
Woven and tied
Switched in a poem-spindle
Desire for knowledge
Playing in your mind
Tones themselves
Playing in your eyes
Mistruths and lies
Lure you in
In mountain-halls fanish
In the mountain you are mine
 
Come in
Come in
 
Come in
In memory
Riding fast
You were mine
The mountain wins
mind and heart
The playing harp
Lure-ribbon
Whirl-sight
Lie and untruths
Switched in a poem-spindle
Desire for knowledge
