within the fire and out upon the sea,
crazy man michael was walking.
he met with a raven with eyes black as coals,
and shortly they were a-talking
``your future, your future, ı would tell to you.
your future, you often have asked me.
your true love will die by your own right hand.
and crazy man michael will cursed be.michael he ranted and michael he raved,
and beat at the four winds with his fists-o.
he laughed and he cried, he shouted and he swore,
for his mad mind had trapped him with a kiss-o.
``you speak with an evil, you speak with a hate,
you speak for the devil that haunts me
for ıs she not the fairest ın all the broad land,
your sorcerers words are to taunt me.he took out his dagger of fire and of steel,
and struck down the raven through the heart-o.
the bird fluttered long and the sky ıt did spin,
and the cold earth did wonder and start-o.
``oh, where ıs the raven that ı struck down dead,
that hered lie on the ground-o?
ı see but my true love with a wound so red,
where her lovers heart ıt did pound-o.crazy man michael, he wanders and walks,
and talks to the night and the day-o.
but his eyes they are sane and his speech ıt ıs clear
and he longs to be far away-o.
michael he whistles the simplest of tunes,
and asks of the wild woods their pardon.
for his true love ıs flown ınto every flower grown,
and he must be keeper of the garden.
