There are English subtitles, translated with corrections from a forum regular.

nice! they were meant to be sung so I would like to hear the meter a little more clearly & why not try some pitch accents.

I'm afraid that's my best as far as metre goes. The pitch accents, when I try to emphasize them, do not come out sounding natural, so I try not to concentrate on them. Maybe once I can do a Norwegian pitch accent, I'll try to attempt a Greek one.
