Back to the ships



A historical piece inspired by Vikings

Cross windswept beach to waiting ships

Through darkened skies a dead eclipse;

Bodies burned return to earth

Those fearsome warriors given birth,

On sodden foreign fields.

Triumphant we return from raids

Of ruthless steel of axe and blade;

Unimaginable riches

Torn from grasp of Saxon witches,

Stored in boxes tightly sealed.


Norsemen forced to sacrifice

They cheer descent to paradise;

On barren farms wait patient mothers

Helmets clutched by weeping others,

Scars still bleed through wooden shields,

By next year they will be healed.


Back to the ships.
