At the edge of sea you die,
poor children, hammer's...

Where the hammer strike
shall thunder crack and roar.
For the river as you, alas, depart,
to ash shall flames your body turn.
Poor children, hammer's...

Shall you the beauty's field visit
which in the ninth it lay?
Shall you be by the Poet chosen,
the hall of golden shields to see?
Or shall you be by none chosen
and left the dark mist only to see?
Poor children, hammer's...

O Viking Gods of the Norse,

O Viking Gods of the Norse,
you governed the mighty seas.
your boats were built of gopher wood;
and you made wise use of a breeze!

I fight for the gods
To make it to Valhalla
Thirsting for sweet war

Laugh openly, mockingly,
at every other Religion,
Philosophy, Opinion,
Yet still I am expected to handle them with kid's gloves.
Expected to tread carefully, not to offend any of their sacred sacraments.
who conquered and enslaved my ancestors through treachery and deceit.
Maybe you should die for your own sins.

O' valkyrie I adore,
The great princess of war,
Please take my hand,
Don't disband with out me,
To the great Valhalla hall!

My fiercest desire.
Is to get lost in your sapphire eyes,
Exult in your flowing golden hair,
until I'm breathless with longing.

Your smell.
That speaks of sage-filled plains,
scorching suns,
and quenching rains.

Rugged arms around me,
hearts synchronized in beating.
The female weakness,
that yearns for the virile touch
of that chosen one.

Two lost souls,
that have finally found each other,
following a trail of silver tears
and shattered illusions...

I feel strong tonight

A hundred songs burst from me

In colorful bloom

The darkness holds fear no more

I laugh in the face of death 

Dreams cannot threaten

I fear no nightly phantom

Day will come with joy

But until then I will sleep

And rest my wearied body. 

My mind is awake

Thought after thought captures me

Musings, wonderings, 

Daydreams before I slumber;

Life is bright and wonderful. 

Yes, I feel strong tonight.

Glide on dark tempest and frighten the skies,
Above blooded lands, lamenting past battle cries!
Valkyrjas of storm; born of thunder.
Warriors of gore; bodies torn asunder!

O’ Blooded maidens; princesses of death,
Descend on these fields with hurried breath!
Pillage strong souls of frenzied conquest.
Gather them now at Odin’s behest!

Herd legions of wraiths behind Valhalla’s cruel gate.
These sleepers of ire; of wars they lay in wait,
For Ragnarök shall roar, so revel in glee.
Delight in this violence, thy mote it be!

For yet another prompt on allpoetry! XD
