Ode to Sunna         Ode to Sunna MP3

Whose face is fair above all else
That mortal sight may see-
That if an eye
Long on her spy
Soon blinded it will be?

Whose golden crown outgleams by far
The diadems of kings-
That in compare
The wealth they wear
Is nought but knaves' tin rings?

Her angry flares seen near and far
Send man-made moons a-sputter.
The Valk'ries fly
The fair north sky
And mens' hearts fall a-flutter.

She kindles life; she causes death.
She's fickle as she's fair.
Her finger's found
On skin that's browned
And maids with white-gold hair.

But on her path we all depend
For golden fruit and grain,
For safety from
Dark Utgard scum-
For she is Alvis' bane.

Without her gaze leaves green would fade.
Without her leash we'd wander.
We'd have no light,
Just lifeless night,
If Sunna weren't up yonder.
