Let there be cold, doom and dark!
The ground's barren, the trees are stark
Let there be blizzard an' mist!
Wake up, carnivorous beast!
Consume the needless, tear the weak
Run more quickly, prowl an' seek
I strike my staff upon the ground
Nothing living shall be found
My fierce white hounds, with eyes of red
Howl through the night, a paean to the dead
Astromancy let me know
That tonight someone will be reborn
O, wind that rages all night long
Wrap the maid and sing her a song
Oh, my Great Sloe! Lull the forlorn
By your mortiferous thorn!
Open your chest towards me
An' venesect your veins, for art
Will live in thee
You're what must winter
You're what must live
