Here and Now

Soldiers ride the tide of swords
they fight while others dream
they see the blood and taste the sweat
while in sagas armor gleams

Kings and lords tread the road
of soldier's marching feet
but more lightly do they tread upon
and never match the beat

When swords to flying stingers fell
the sport of Odin changed
might gave way to steady mind
but courage stayed the same

A trial of motives lingers now
few ask the question 'why?'
But truly only Einherjar know
where and how they died


For someone I will never meet, whose world I may never understand. Callsign 'Freyja'.
Died January 4th 2006
