Ok, will put it all up, but would propose as Wren has already mentioned to change the "elven" men and woman to "human", because it's very unlikely that elves get angry after the death of their beloved. This is typically human.

Also couldn't find titles of the poems, but I decided to use the following:

"Queen of the Dead" (indicated who's the victor)
"Esh'neán" (Not the end)
"Parki Na'roo Patre Popai" (Until we see you)
"From Death into Dream" (as it seems to be the central line)

If you would prefer other titles, just let me know, I've just needed the titles to put the poems up.

Also have to say that Wren's sung interpretations of the poems are really good and very emotional. I also couldn't get the Call of Surian out of my mind, in the most postive sense I can think of:)

No problem. I never noted that elven/ human thing, but whatever works, Arti. In Santharia, my works bend to your will.

What about:
'A elven man and a human woman',

as the line. It works better melodically, and gives a reason for the specification, as if they were both human they wouldn't say(?)......

I'd say human+elf would give the whole thing too much inter-racial touch so that the storyline gets lost because of these evident racial differences.

How about finding an adjective for the woman with at least 2 syllables: "A human man and his ??? woman"?

It doesn't quite work with my current melody, but its the best sggestion so far, so I can work around it.

How about

"Two people, mourning, man and wife,
are sitting side by side"

or

"Two mourning people, man and wife,"

etc.

what ever works. Art has given words; if Wren feels they can fit to the Music, they can ne changed. They're just words, but Art's dream and Music are meant to be a certain way.

I'll change the entry's line.
