Black and Shining River was a song sung by Spriton Song-Tellers. It sang of the Black River, and how much the unnamed song teller liked it.[1]

Song[]

O black and shining river

Night within the day of the wood

Wherever round you wander

Life rises from you, green and good

O black and shining river

Wide from the forest to the sea

Guide me through the darkest night

Be my nighttime eyes so I can see

O black and shining river

Fated lifeline of the land

Telling all her quiet secrets

As a crease read in a gentle hand

O black and shining river

Now take me out to sea

Though it was along your watery way

That I was ever truly free[2]
