Transcript of Ballad

The scrumptious feast on the frost night
Ghostly with the blue moon in sight
The fateful night that changed my life
With the rider who flew in plight

The scrumptious feast on the frost night
Ghostly with the blue moon in sight
Many passed on the quite dark day
Fateful, very happy tonight

As I mourned over the big rock
Many passed maybe to just mock
The fateful night that changed my life
With the rider who flew in plight

It means that someone close to him died on the blue moon. The Rider is the person who died leaving Earth. And, he mourned over the rock which is the grave.

The Little Boy Lost

"Father, father where are you going?
Oh do not walk so fast!
Speak,father, speak to your little boy,
Or else I shall be lost."

The night was dark, no father was there,
The child was wet with dew;
The mire was deep, and the child did weep,
And away the vapour flew.
