Lyrics by: Abdurehim Ötkür Beste ve Seslendiren / Music by and Sing by: Abdürehim Heyit

The song was written in 1948, so it is relatively modern. But the mode of singing seems to be ancient.

 

For Sommerlund!

Think Sommerlund and its people the Sommlending, you think Kai Lord, right? Warrior priests of Kai, master of the Kai disciplines, the chosen race of the forces of Good in the world of Magnamund. (I do wonder if there have ever been any non-Sommlending Kai Lords?)

Well, most Sommlending are more like these two.

 And even this buffoon falling off the coach trying to pull out his sword is a Sommlending:

Well, it takes all kinds of people to make the valorous Kingdom of Sommerlund. Somebody has to bake the bread and cut firewood.
