lyrics

Silkirein

Ég veit
Eina baugalínu,
Af henni tendrast vann
Eldheit
Ást í brjósti mínu, öll svo ég brann.
Bjartleit
Burtu hvarf úr rann.

Nú er ei hugurinn heima,
Nú er ei hugurinn heima
Því hana ei öðlast kann…

Mey brá
Mér fyrir hvarmasteina
Margri fyrr og síð,
Ei sá
Eg að heldur neina,
Er svo þætti fríð,
Fótsmá,
Fagurhent og þýð.

Nú er ei hugurinn heima,
Nú er ei hugurinn heima
Hún hvarf á samri tíð

Augnskær,
En á hörundið bjarta
Eins og mjöllin hrein,
Mjög nær
Mínu gekk hún hjarta,
Hýran af henni skein
Sú fær
Svalað geðinu ein.

Nú er ei hugurinn heima,
Nú er ei hugurinn heima
Því horfin er silkirein
Því horfin er silkirein
Horfin er silkirein
