Default Take Me To Valhalla (Villanelle In Pentameter)


Great Odin! God of war and poetry,
Send valkyries to raise me from the field.
Let me fight in the battle you foresee.

I died with valor; my life was lost for thee.
In Valhalla, mortal wounds will be healed.
Great Odin! God of war and poetry,

Your eye was lost to Mimir under his tree;
Lend me the wisdom and power you wield.
Let me fight in the battle you foresee.

Father of Thor and mightier than he,
Your fated spear breaks all battle shields.
Great Odin! God of war and poetry,

Whose ravens flew to you and spoke of me,
That I was brave, fought well, and never kneeled.
Let me fight in the battle you foresee.

Grant I am worthy to share eternity
To feast forever let my fate be sealed.
Great Odin! God of war and poetry,
Let me fight in the battle you foresee.
