Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?

Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?

Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?

They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;

The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.

Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning,

Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

languages, how I love thee
well I managed to translate the whole thing on my own before posting this reply- looked like one of the Rne forms but wasn't observing the 'regular' translation sets, so I sat down and started running my own translation, and figured it all out :)

I like the poem BTW, it's nice :)
thanks for the brain teaser :D
