In Praise of Grim the Skald

Eastern Skald stood         by Northern Star
Bestowed wordgift         of wondrous tone
Trillium Queen wept      tears of joy
Gesture greeted with      joyful cries
Called to the Skald ‘Vivat!’- vivid praise
Poet spoke not proud      passion burned
brought honor bright       to Eastern Star

 

This was written back in 2010 at the behest of Master Hector. This was written to commemorate a poem preformed by Grim for  Hector’s Queen. This was my first attempt at period style verse.
