Three times they burned the three times born



She remembers the first war in the world

When Gold-Brew was hoist on the spears

And in the High One´s hall they burned her

Three times they burned the three times born

Often, not seldom, but she still lives!

She was called Bright One when she came to the settlements

The greatly talented Carrier of the Wand

She performed magic, ecstatically she performed it

She knew how to cast spells

She was always loved by wicked women.
