Wolves their mournful cry
Nature in its dreaming

1. Shadows of the Past
Deep in the forest, a whispering wind
Tells tales of olden days.
Of warriors bold and battles fought,
Of yore, in many ways.
The trees around sway and bend,
As the words carry on the breeze.
The rustle of leaves, the crunch of twigs,
A reminder of the past that appeases.
Legends of Odin and Thor,
Of their courage and might.
The feats that they accomplished,
In a time both dark and bright.
The shadows of the past loom large,
As they dance in the fading light.
The wind picks up, and the stories cease,
For now, they leave with the night.
2. The Call of the Sea
The roar of the breakers,
The sound of the waves.
The call of the sea,
In a voice that never fades.
The salt in the air,
The spray on your face.
A sensation so elemental,
It cannot be replaced.
The rhythm of the ocean,
In sync with the heart.
A feeling so powerful,
That sets the soul apart.
The tales of the sea,
Of battles fought and won.
Of sailors brave and valiant,
Of the course they had begun.
The call of the sea,
A siren’s song to the true.
A journey to the unknown,
Calling out to the few.
The Battle of Ragnarok
Amidst the howling winds and roaring thunder,
The great warriors gathered to wage a battle,
With Odin, the Allfather, leading the charge,
And Heimdall, the Keeper of the Bifrost, standing tall.
The skies rumbled with the footsteps of giants,
As they marched towards the battleground,
Their eyes burning with a fierce hunger,
To bring about the end of the world.
The dragon Nidhogg flew overhead,
Flashes of lightning reflecting off its scales,
Eager to feast on the flesh of the fallen,
And to leave nothing in its wake.
The armies clashed midair, swords and axes hacking,
Spears piercing through shields, blood staining the ground,
As warriors fought with all their might and will,
To ensure their place in Valhalla.
Loki, the trickster god, laughed from afar,
As he watched the chaos unfold,
Sowing the seeds of discord and betrayal,
To hasten the coming of the final Ragnarok.
But the gods were not alone in their fight,
For the forces of darkness met their match,
With the fiery Muspelheim engulfing the battlefield,
And the icy Niflheim battling fiercely.
The final showdown would determine the fate of all,
As the gods and giants wrestled with each other,
And the elements themselves raged and roared,
In a cataclysmic battle for supremacy.
In the end, the world was reborn,
From the ashes of destruction and desolation,
With the gods risen victorious,
Their glory and power shining bright in the heavens.
Skaldic Ode to Odin
Oh, mighty Odin, ruler of the gods
With spear in hand and wisdom in your mind
You who sacrificed your eye for knowledge
And hung for nine nights upon the world tree
We honor thee, oh great Allfather
From your throne in Asgard, you watch over us
Guiding our destiny with your fateful runes
You who know the secrets of the universe
And hold the power to sway its course
We pray to thee, oh wise wanderer
Oh, Odin, master of poetry and art
Your voice rings through the halls of Valhalla
As you regale your warriors with your tales
And inspire us mortals with your songs
We praise thee, oh skaldic one
You who ride the winds with your eight-legged horse
And lead the dead to their final resting place
Your ravens Huginn and Muninn soaring ahead
Bringing back knowledge from far-flung realms
We follow thee, oh fearless leader
In battle, we invoke your name for strength
For you are the patron god of the slain
Your Valkyries descend from the heavens
To choose the bravest warriors for your hall
We fear thee, oh lord of war
Oh, Odin, we offer our mead to thee
As we celebrate your deeds and glory
Our hearts alight with the flames of your fire
And our souls filled with the wisdom of your words
We honor thee, oh eternal Odin.
