A peek at the time our Fox Meadow Elves (Icelandic Sheepdog puppies) spent with us as they grew. Both the songs I used in this slide show are based on traditional folk tales dealing with little lady Elves seducing a traveling gentlman. I couldn't find more appropriate music for our little Elf litter. Folklore about Elves and the Hidden folk are an prominent piece of Icelandic culture. We are thrilled to be able to remember this with our Thordunu Leppatuska's and Runestone Toblerone Kaffison's Fox Meadow Elf litter.
The First song, Ólavur Riddararós is in Faroese by the band Valravn. The Faroe Islands lie off the Coast of Iceland.
On his way to be married, Ólavur is seduced by an elf maid.
''- Ungir kallar, kátir kallar = young men merry men,
Gangiðupp á gólv, = come into the floor
dansð lystillig! = and dance lustily!''
The second song is the Icelandic version of the Folk tale Ólafur Liljurós song by Veslemøy Solberg.
These folktale dates back to the 15th century and are still sung about today!
