Young Uller
The first stanza is is repeated as the burden (chorus).

Whence and what art thou, Urwald Wight?
Uller the Bold, Snow Strider Swift
Seeker, Shielder, Slayer of Banes
Who are your Folk? What are their Names?

When Gods were young, ere dawn of time
They had to learn, how to act right
To help their folk and ward their clans
As all must do to for commonweal
- Burden

In dark woods deep on mountainside
Nameless clan dwelt, alone, yet strong
Building their lives around the Hunt
Warding their bounds, honing their skills
- Burden

Born to this Folk, old in the Land
A tall, strong lad with clear, sharp eyes
Was bright of mien and straight of limb
Walking the Woods, his greatest joy
- Burden

Elder Warder took him in hand
Taught him the bow and knife and spear
Showed him the ways of Beast and Land
Taught him the things that helped the Folk
- Burden

One day Elder sent him to mound
Told him to sit and listen well
To hear the sounds, Life all around
To seek within, Meaning of this
- Burden

Insight he gained was old and deep
Coming from Well, he hadn't known
Down from the mound, Elder saw change
Gave him a shield and set new path
- Burden

This young man then went to the woods
Took up new life, walking the verge
Warding the folk of home and clan
Turning aside harm from them all
- Burden

When Gods were young, ere dawn of time
They had to learn, how to act right
To help their folk and ward their clans
As all must do to for commonweal
- Burden
- Burden
