Valkyrie



Peace came forth from above

Rays of the sun shined down onto

All caught in its touch grace

Such a ray never before seen



A voice like none other

Bellowing out across the land

Those who hear flood with peace

Anger, sorrow, and hatred vanish



Animals from all over

Migrating closer to the source

Man stood by unsure of what to do

Approach or run, nobody knew



On the ground light condensed

Rising up from the earth

A nymph in a class all her own

Stood on earth before all to view



From her back emerges swiftly

Wings only heard of in fantasy

Shining bright hid her torso

The eyes of men too lusty



Hair hung down low

Braids as thick as rope

Deep dark eyes rained down upon

Blueness no one could ever achieve.



Her melody ended

Silence ensued the land

Animals around her lay down

Men oblige and kneel before her



Scanning the land around her

A smile creeps onto her lips

They part to release a melody

Dwarfing the previous from memory



Men and beast alike

Raise their eyes to view

A beauty by all standards

A beauty called Valkyrie

That is my cat's name, my daughter is Freyja.

I love this poem, because it incites many things within me that I seemed to have forgotten over the years..all the things I've learned about the mythology of the Norse.

Much enjoyed.

Yo Elemental Warrior,

Is there a lot of that going on down your way?  Here in Philly we don't see many chicks riding around on flying horses, and the closest merry-go-round is in Willow Grove Park, about fourty miles up the road.  BTW--It's a great place for fun.

The "Ride of the Valkries" by Richard Wagner was my first introduction to classical music.  I loved the tune, and still do.

Where are you getting merry-go-round from?
