The Dnieper Rapids

A terrible noise heard from far away

Drowning all other sounds

No cry of the birds nor voice of men

Just an awful groan

Silence fell over the men

As the river seemed to end

Then...

Clouds of spray, Pechenegs prey

The Insatiable One is hungry today

Avoid the rocks for all you're worth

Whirlpools gaze from the depths of earth

Like dominoes six locks will fall

One after another

The World Serpent will rise from the silt

And poison the sky

Clouds of spray, Pechenegs pray

The Insatiable One is hungry today

The violent current swept Karl away

One mistake- with your life you pay

Silence fell over the men

As the river seemed to...

A sight they had dreamed of

Now opened in front of them

Fraught with danger and travail

The river came to an end
