Lay of the Norse Gods and Heroes 
 
Step out of the misty veil
Which darkly winds round thee;
Step out of the olden days,
Thou great Divinity!
Across thy mental vision
Passes the godly host,
That Bragi's melodies
Made Asgard's proudest boast.
There rise the sounds of music
From harp strings sweet and clear,
Wonderfully enchanting
To the receiving ear.
Thou wast it, thou hast carried
Sagas of northern fame,
Did'st boldly strike the harp strings
Of old skalds; just the same
Thou spann'st the bridge of Bifrost,
The pathway of the gods;-
O name the mighty heroes,
Draw pictures of the gods!

Robert E. Howard
