The 5 th Sister Song
Believe me dear sisters - do you know, what I saw ?
dozens of icebergs, lying off shore
shining as bright as a diamond ring
floating in water like pearls on a string
The wind was cold and sharp as the air
biting my cheek - pulling my hair...
But towards evening when light faded out
rose to the sky a threathening cloud:
flashes of lightning, dazzling my eye
while hundreds of beasts are roaring from sky...
Sailors retire and sail no more
So ships seem to drift from the sea to the shore
/:Oh sisters - what a sight
Icebergs flashed fire by night:/
