Dawn Raid…..

Sun’s Fire on
The Horizon
As Our Longships
Reach the Coast
We sing Our
War-Chant to
The All-Father
As we Splash
Into the Roiling
Sea
Sword, Shield
Axe, Spear
Tools of War
Tools of Death
We pile the Corpses
Of Our Foes
High
A Feast for
Odin’s Ravens
The Flames
Of Funeral Pyres
Climb into the Dark
Clouds for
Those Who
Have Passed to
The Halls of
Valhalla
They have the True
Victory
Their Glory lives
Forever
