Ju Honisch started filking in the early nineties when the genre reached Germany. She had written a few songs before that time, but only after she discovered filk it became clear that this music genre was just what she had always wanted. And liked. And had – in fact – done without knowing it. Over the next 25 years she wrote approximately 280 songs, too many to stay in the collective filking brain; too many, in fact, to sing them all at cons. Some stayed on, though. Of those which stayed on, the best songs were co-productions with her long-time partner, Katy Dröge-Macdonald, such “1000 Ships”, or “Pageant Legend” (also known as “that Morgane song”).

When not filking or toiling away at her day-job, Ju writes fantasy novels (published in German) and was awarded both Detuscher Phantastik Preis (German Hugo) and the SERAPH (German Speculative Fiction Award). She still hopes these books will be published in English one day. More about her writing can be found at her website: juhonisch.de.

The Wild Hunt

Words and Music © Juliane Honisch
All Rights Reserved- Lyrics posted with permission of the author

The icy night
Falls dark and black and kills the day.
No light in sight,
No Christmas sleigh is on its way
And time goes on.
The dark, wild hunt will bite and tear,
Once it's begun,
Will ride your soul without a care.
Dead people walking
Ignore your baulking
Beckon you with might.
Don't fly with the night!

The hoar frost bites
And freezes trees and leaves like glass.
White mist, it blights
And spoils the land and will not pass.
Your eyes go blind
In darkness and in cloudy grey.
The hunt will find
You and your life will fly away.
Dark dreams and night mares
Will ever fight there
Everywhere and here
All in snow will blear.

They freeze your heart,
Blood curdles in your brittle veins.
A baleful art
Draws misery with gelid paints.
No day's in sight,
it could not ever farther be.
The icy night
Is Lord and does not hear your plea.
Dark and querulous
Flies the susurrus.
Close your hearing fast!
Or be lost at last.

There wails the song.
Oh, that you had not heard it now!
You're drawn along.
Your soul is breaking every vow.
Into the ice
You're running towards your doom and death
And in a trice
The storm wind steals your final breath.
Spirits pale and stale
Make you death inhale
And with them you fly.
In the ice you die.

EXTRO
Yule night,
Cruel night,
Ice night.
Vice might
Think in
Sinking
Thoughts of winter,
Drive you into
Lour
Power.
See them?
Flee them!
They come -
May come
Feel your,
Steal your
Soul and
Roll it
Down
Towards doom.
