My very first attempt at a Ballad. It may seem poor quality compared to my other poems, but for good reason. I never scrap a poem if I feel a connection to it. I can tell what a good poem is usually by how well I am attached to it. If I would be proud to see it on a web page or newspaper, I keep it. This one I feel that connection to, because it's good, but it's not as good. Don't worry, this is my first of many ballads. I will get it right in time. (It helps to imagine a group of vikings singing this ballad, as ballads are usually meant to be sung. It's got a catchy tune. Enjoy!)

Ljóð af þrumur Guðs - Ballad by Conall O’Mordha

He rides at night and slays in day,
He is all great evil’s bane,
with jormungand destined display,
ragnarok both shall be slain.

Defender of the Æsir gods,
Son of Odin the great,
Protector of the human race,
He stands to face his fate.

His courage and sense of duty,
unshakable so far,
Enemies shall all die out when,
he wears megingjarðar.

He rides at night and slays in day,
He is all great evil’s bane,
with jormungand destined display,
ragnarok both shall be slain.

He stands to face the divine planes,
He stands to face midgard,
Hlöðyn sworn by birth to protect,
Evil giants be charred,

With Mjolnir’s thunderous attack,
He will slay Jormungand,
Meet at the edge of the planet,
Final war corresponds,

He rides at night and slays in day,
He is all great evil’s bane,
with jormungand destined display,
ragnarok both shall be slain.

He fears not of his destined death,
for all wise surely learn,
The winter shall reign death of spring,
but spring always returns.

Legends do not ever succumb,
even to grips of death,
When time fits our needs, he will return,
he relives every breath.

He rides at night and slays in day,
He is all great evil’s bane,
with jormungand destined display,
ragnarok both shall be slain.
