Skorzenitsa warrior-host traveling ballad

Post by Pigasus » Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:11 am

From the mountains to the open, on the rolling river wave
Sail the brightly painted longboats of the Skorzenitsa braves

In the lead, Bogdan Skorzenko, princess locked in his embrace
Celebrates his latest wedding, drunk and merry in the face

And his Najji bride is silent, with a veil about her head
Eyes downcast, she hears the speeches with a rising note of dread.

In the rear, they hear the grumbling: 'left us for a woman, shame."
"Just one night with her he tarried, like a woman he became."

Now the hetman hears the jeering of his discontented band,
Grasps his princess by the middle with one mighty warrior hand

Bushy brows have knit together, stormclouds billow, on the rise
Bolts of red now pierce the darkness of the fearsome leader's eyes

"I spare nothing; pity nothing; I would sooner give my head,"
His voice thunders, echo rolling to the river banks ahead

"Ladoga, our mother dearest, nation's blood from hill to coast
You have not received a present from the Skorzenitsa Host."

"That our brothers do not quarrel, that our order is unharmed.
Ladoga, our mother dearest, take this beauty in your arms!"

By the waist, he lifts and raises his resplendant Najji belle
Overboard, he boldly throws her into the onrushing swell

"Whyfor brothers are you saddened? Hey there, Ivan, dance, you troll!
Let us sing a mighty ballad in the memory of her soul."

From the mountains to the open, on the rolling river wave
Sail the brightly painted longboats of the Skorzenitsa braves
