"Crack of doom no turning back / Burn away now all the tears / Pass the peace to those who lack / Liberate us from the fears / Of a thousand thousand years"


Valhalla of the Slain

 

Leaps the flame up bright and high

Probing tongues to taste the sky

Over Bifrost heroes wait

In the halls of Asgard great

From the battlefield below

 

Kissed by maiden flame of fate

Where their blood has soaked the snow

To Valhalla of the slain

There in peace the valiant know

That their blood ran not in vain

 

Slain in victory or loss

Both refined alike from dross

Spun from darkness into light

Unalloyed and nothing less

To the gold of everness

 

They who fought by faith not sight

Bore their triumph their defeat

Both alike in mien and might

Stood their ground with forward feet

Bear the purity of right

 

Here today no cowards burn

See this leaping flame and learn

Death and life are one my son

Life is not to win nor lose

But is never to refuse

 

Death is life today begun

That which must be must be so

Light fears not the dark below

March into the mouth of hell

With a shout and drag them out

 

Cowards cower in the dark

Darklings hate what can create

Flame enlightens strong and stark

Darkling sons of he who fell

Would but pervert and destroy

 

By your blood Valhalla's joy

Waits for you across the sky

Heroes only seem to die

Clarified by fire and pain

Bearing torches in the rain

 

Crack of doom no turning back

Burn away now all the tears

Pass the peace to those who lack

Liberate us from the fears

Of a thousand thousand years

 

Leaps the flame up bright and high

Probing tongues to taste the sky

In the torchlight we attack

We burn to be born again

In Valhalla of the slain

Reviewed by Judy Lloyd (Reader)
This reminds me of the epic poems of the English period. It is very well written.
