Mother wept for her son
she wept and sang
anxiously pndered fate
his and her own

A sun's ray, in through the eye
glimmered in the room of mind
changing the woman shape
sorrow fled her face

From the shaman into shaman

From the chimney a witch flew out
shaman dived across the sky
under her the woods and lakes
till she saw the Northland gates

I have come for my son, where is my son?
I accept no lies, no falsehoods or deception
I'll send you plagues unnumbered
destruction upon your house
I lay to waste your treasures
and slay your fairest daughter

The queen of north told the way
the road to River Black
impossible and incomplete
the path of no return

    General Commentwow. I know this song is about Lemminkinen's Mother, from the Kalevala, but I see strong parallels to Lady Stoneheart from GRRM's Song of Ice and Fire

    'Mother wept for her sun' bring to mind her thoughts at the end of the Red Wedding.
    The 'Sun's ray' that changes her could be the Red Magic used by Thoros to resurrect her.
    In many ways she goes from being a mother to being a kind of witch, hell-bent on revenge by an means.
