~ Non-Norse poetry by me ~
Ash of world and Oak of might,
Elder tree and Birch so bright,
Blackthorn with the berries blue,
Alder´s brook and ancient Yew,
Weeping Willow, Rowan trees,
Poplar tall and swaying Reeds,
Holly, Heather, Hawthorn fair,
Yellow Furze and Silver Fir,
Climbing Ivy, winding Vine,
Apple, Hazel, all are mine.
