Now we shall see the faces of the girls when they come to the banquet.
Never had beggars such a time.
Hark! They are coming. I hear footsteps.
The dancing girls! They are coming!
There is no sound of flutes, they said they would come with music.
What heavy boots they have; they sound like feet of stone.
I do not like to hear their heavy tread. Those that would dance to us must be light of foot.
I shall not smile at them if they are not airy.
They are coming very slowly. They should come nimbly to us.
They should dance as they come. But the footfall is like the footfall of heavy crabs.
ULF (in a loud voice, almost chanting)
I have a fear, an old fear and a boding. We have done ill in the sight of the seven gods.
