An ode to the Skalds

I intended to write this in a Skaldic style, with 6 syllables per line, kennings and alliteration. Whether I have succeeded, I leave to the forum. Any criticism or praise is welcomed- criticism more so than praise:

O those blessed by Bragi,
Wanderers of wisdom
And silver tongued speakers:
Your verse, now only lines.

Singing sagas of great
Glory and blood soaked swords,
Of kings and courageous
Men, of humans and gods,

Ramblers of rocks and roads,
Of grass, sand, courts and inns-
Trading heroics and
History for warm beds.

Your noble profession,
Has died with the dawn of
Decadence and the death
Of the heroic age;

May bold, daring kinsmen,
Blessed by Bragi, strengthened
By One-eye and his son,
Bring back what was once lost.
