A Warrior’s Epitaph

Struck down by six swords
Rising, raging,
taking three more
while five other appear late,
finally falling before the
combined might of the eight.

A glorious death
in battle’s fury,
in honour’s glory,
fit for myth
and fit for story

I journey on to
my prepar-ed place
to sit with Odin,
see his scarred face,
to dine with warriors
of legends past,
and take my place,
among them at last,
in Valhalla.
