Day Eight

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.
