    Here you go:

    B E R G T A T T - E T E E V E N T Y R I 5 C A P I T L E R
    S P E L L B O U N D - A F O L K T A L E I N 5 P A R T S

    C A P I T E L I - I T R O L D S K O G F A R E N V I L D
    P A R T I - L E D A S T R A Y I N T H E F O R E S T D A R K E

    They awaited the Maiden's return
    Astray She was in the Forest darke
    -Her onlie Friende
    The homeward Path - Hidden by spreading Snow

    O could She but
    Follow the starrie Trails
    She would not be lost
    Amongst these Spruces darke

    Wooden arms embraced the foreign Guest
    Sad was their Song to her
    The Halls of the Mountaine Kinge
    Clamoure for Christian Bloode

    The Netherworlde:
    "Near at hande; a Maid in grieffe
    Handes joyn'd in Prayer
    A Litanie rises to the Heaven above"

    From Sprigges above
    Upon her Head
    Drop by drop as Bloode
    From the Bodie of Christe

    The Maiden:
    "Alas! Alone In Foreste deep
    Tonight, I feel and fear
    No one remembers Me"

    C A P I T E L I I - S O E L E N G A A E R B A G A A S E N E E D
    P A R T I I - B E T W I X T C R A G G E S A D E S C E N D I N G S U N N E

    Slowly, slowly She turns her Head
    Listening to distant words
    Spoken from somewhere Below, O'th'Heart's woe

    The Maiden:
    "Betwixt the cragges a descending Sunne
    The shadows grow O so long
    Soon the Night will come
    To binde and imprison Me"

    Downe her cheek a Teardrop fell
    of longinge for those back Home
    How She wished to hold&be held
    And out of Sorrow rose Her nameless Payne

    Shrunken in weepinge
    Lost in the Darke
    On these Midnighte paths

    Asleep She falls on a bed of Moss
    Silence falls upon the Trees
    Then, o'er the paths of her dreams,
    A dense Veil falls

    Now art Thou by many remembered!

    C A P I T E L I I I - G R A A B L I C K B L E V H U N V A E R
    P A R T I I I - S H E S E N S E S E Y N E O F G R E Y

    From afar She is watch'd
    By eyne that play in grey
    While above the Moone, silent, Glides

    The Maiden:
    "Cold eyne I sense
    What Creatures are near?
    Fast, far away from here I must flee
    Or by force their Magick will steal me away"

    Eyne hold her still
    Caress Her from afar

    Norwegian Nighte turns colde
    When howling Wolves do sing
    Thunder rolling (Fear rides in the air)

    A snowcladde Worlde
    -In silence
    Alone She is, and astray
    Throbbing fast, her Hearte
    Her Bloode turning to Ice

    The Netherworlde:
    Here lieth Sorrow's Source
    Between the thornecladde Trees
    So faire a virtuous Maide
    Her dreams invite the Dawn

    On these Damask'd cheeks
    On her Mouth bereft of Smile
    A torrent of Tears runs free
    While the Worlde sleeps

    C A P I T E L I V - E E N S T E M M E L O C K E R
    P A R T I V - A V O I C E B E C K O N S H E R

    Awaking on shadowie pathes
    In the deep green Glade
    When a whispering Voice She hears
    From deep inside the Woodland

    The Voice:
    "Come, if Thou wilt
    In Darkness come
    My Eye shall win Thee
    My Hair shall bind Thee"
    (Wordes tender and tempting...)

    The Maiden:
    "O sweet Voice, why
    Dost Thou bring back my Payne
    To this silent forest Glade?"

    The Voice:
    "Maide, what canst Thou wish to win?
    Come follow Me into my Home
    Bring to thy minde our Joy,
    Our Harmonie, our Bliss"

    The Maiden:
    "I can not comprehend - I feel so strange...
    Please speak... Must I, must I?"

    C A P I T E L V - B E R G T A T T - I N D I F J E L D K A M R E N E
    P A R T V - S P E L L B O U N D - I N T O T H E M O U N T A I N S

    The Maide begg'd for release
    Her Plea to no avail
    Again a Maiden vanished
    They used her as they pleas'd
    And did not use her kindlie

    To the Hall of Shadows
    So cold the Mountain's blue

    The Mountaine bade her welcome
    Embraced her harshlie and hard
    Again the worlde was Night
    And She forever lost

    Her dying breath a scream
    A long gone Era, not forgotten
    - A bodie once mortal, now Stone

    The Moone faded, gone!
    And dim be the Stars

    Cry! Rain and Storm!
    Far north in the Mountain wildes
    Below crest and cragge
    They play
