I walk the long, old road alone
earning no man's praises but my own
hearing Odin's call deep in my bones.

Like Heimdallr I see,
smoke curling above a tree
where warm hearth
and bed can be found for me.

Once there I fill a mug
with mead, and slurp
it down, filling up
like a jug.

My respite found
far from the gravelly ground
comfortable and sound
until I rise again.

Most holy are you. None more may be said.

From the halls of Valhalla the heroe Gawain walked,
Through the lands of the dead he was stalked
For Odin's calling beckoned beyond his hall
To return to Midgard was his call!
Reborn from the dead I believe is what you say.
I can only respond in poetry to a wonderful lay.
For we are those those who do remember,
For us death is letter marked "return to sender."
