Do these two things go together?

Quote
Rage--Goddess! Sing of your flight,
From our fathers and our sons.
Away, Goddess! Secret your divinity!
From the conceit that makes kings of fools
From the scrutiny that makes corpses of souls.
Mouths open, arms thrown wide, we beseech thee:
Sing us the end of your song.
Quote
They did hoist Anarlū’s head high,
And poured down its blood as fire.
And the ground gave forth many sons,
Ninety nine who were as Gods,
And so bid their fathers
Be as sons…

A cute couple for sure, which means its a good thing they're unrelated.

Damn. the fathers and sons terminology made me think they were related.

Why does the Boatman begin to sing about Anarlu at that point?  Who is Anarlu?
