The Saga of Gunnlaug the Worm-Tongue and Raven the Skald

Gelesen von Phil Schempf

(4,391 Sterne; 23 Bewertungen)


A tale from Iceland, 800 years ago.
In a dream of quarrels and death
The birth of fair Helga is told
Cross the north seas ventured for fame
At the call of kings, hearth bereft
Wounded pride, spawn'd of a sensed slight
When tongues fail, sharper blades prevail
Falcon soothes the cloak wrapt wound
Fair one pines and fades from the light. - Summary by Fritz
