Let him lie who chased after Hel
For Life held him, and found him wanting
He chased words, and magic through every breath-haunting.
Yet, every one, instead of gifting, chose to quell
his life until he sank to Holda’s well,
for Witches claimed to make him Poet-King.
Freya taught him strength, Eostre him dawning.
Yet, all men must eventually bid farewell.
