Whispers hidden among thieves
Ripples in deep waters
Signalling what Fate weaves

Summoning the Morrigan's daughters

 

Ravens flying o'er forests dark tree

Wings beating to the steady drum
Of longboats near the sea

Doom incarnate set against the sun

 

Smoky plumes mark the landing

Invaders from the frozen north

Warriors on the hills are standing
Waiting to be called forth

 

Children of snowy tundra and green fells collide
The raven watches as the Fates decide
