We laid him down

on a field of flames

in the ruddy glow

of sunset’s blood

Upon his breast

lay his shattered shield

in clenched fingers

was his notched blade

Upon his cheeks

Within his hair

sculpting each bone

with time’s harsh tongue

to the water’s edge

and cold the fjord

around our feet

Set sail to wind

and gathered voices

rouse the gods

call for safe passage

We drank his name

under the fires of dawn

and wait to see him

at the end of all things
