The Parting Glass: a Song for Albus Dumbledore
A filk by Valeria-Johanna of a favourite Irish folk song, The Parting Glass. It’s sung here by Valeria-Johanna, who also made the artwork.
This version pictures Dumbledore, in the latter days of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, about to head off on his travels again in his search for the secret of how to beat Voldemort. Before he goes, he feels the need to have a word with his trusted right-hand man, and cracks open the oak-matured mead (or possibly the firewhisky).
The lyrics are here.
