Opening Verse of the Saga of the Bear-Folk (Revised)

I recently updated my opening poem to the Saga of the Bear-folk, with that I needed to update the language. Here is the updated poem! I've also begun to create the language of the Fae creatures in the adventure I've been writing.

Here begins the journey of the Bear-Folk,
and their Epic Saga

This story does begin,
When a rune-stone was discovered
In Rytarrskegg
By a fisherman called Harrik

Bemused by the strange monolith,
The Bjordunnar Chief, a man named Ivrik Arnbjorg
Called forth the the clan for a meeting
To discuss this discovery

It was decided,
That a group of warriors,
Be sent to investigate 
The rune-stone

Harrik the Fisherman said,
“That to find the stone,
One was sail north-east
along the coast.”

Until a great white tree
is spotted at the mouth of a river
Then one must sail up river
Until you come across a placid lake.”
