In Valdyan, usually _halsin_ "songs", where little distinction is
made between the tune and the words. If it's specifically the words
of a song *written down*, _gylsen_ "writing, text" is used.
I don't think Valdyans understand that one can write a poem without
the intention to sing or at least recite it.
