This is a poem I wrote a few years ago. Enjoy.

A Vikingís Prayer

Iím standing on the ship
Looking out towards the sea,
Glancing at the water
That soon will carry me.
Beating of distant drums
Coming from the battlefield,
A thousand Viking warriors
With weapons they wonít yield.
I hear Valhallaís call
Coming yonder from the sky,
My time will soon be up
I know then that I must die.
I call upon mighty Thor
To be always at my side,
So that I may fight bravely
After each oncoming tide.
Let blood be on my sword
Let sweat fall from my brow,
As I go on the battlefield
And strike my foes down.
If I should be last to fall
Let me die a death with pride
Then my children will proudly know
A hero is how I died.

Reviewed by Frances Lynn
I don't make a habit of reading modern poetry, but the content of A Prayer for all Vikings is quite profound. It rhymes too - wouldn't be out of place in an English lit class in the school's curriculum!
