Could somebody give me the poem in the beginning of the book? Something wrote by Kyera Termendal or something... I want the English piece of it.

 

And could somebody also give me the English part of the song the Aiel sing at Dumais?

 

thx

There can be no health in us,

nor any good thing grow,

for the land is one with the Dragon Reborn,

and he one with the land. 

 

Soul of fire, heart of stone,

in pride he conquers,

forcing the proud to yield.

 

He calls upon the mountains to kneel,

and the seas to give way,

and the very skies to bow. 

 

Pray that the heart of stone remembers tears,

and the soul of fire, love.

 

I don't find any singing Aiel at Dumai's Wells.

I recall some singing of funereal dirges, but I don't remember specific words being sung, I'm away from my books, but I'm relatively sure that the words weren't specified.

 

Yes, they were specified. It was in the beginning of CoS.

Life is a dream-that knows no shade.

Life is a dream-of pain and woe.

A dream from which-we pray to wake.

A dream from which-we wake and go.

 

Who would sleep-when the new dawn waits?

Who would sleep-when the sweet winds blow?

A dream must end-when the new day comes.

This dream from which-we wake and go.
