... the old black rum
Saga For my 1000th post
(some definitions at the bottom)
And goddess Saga, in verse set forth
On Sleipnir's back to winters north
on Gungnirs tip, Huginn's corpse
a gift of homage, for Mimir's Vow
Heart in heart to face Ragnarok
Dead and gone in ancient songs
The spirit of a Goddess, somehow lives on….
Through Ragnarok, the gods have lost,
The worship of the common flock,
And Loki, in death laughs on, and on.
Now past and future do collide,
These dreams that mortal man, contrive.
But who’s to say, the dream is made
Of fantasy’s from all of yesterdays,
maybe the dreamer is the dream, that dreams..
But, in the dream that the dreamer sees,
Lives the image of the olden Seas
And wooden ships with wind swept wings
Where the Goddess, sails in the heart of me
Come, Oh come and you shall see..
And if you listen in the night,
On salty air, with starry lights
Down by the well of the oceans tides
A whispered song, enchants the wise
Whispering dreams, as she softly sings…
Oh sail with me to County Cork,
on a maiden voyage of gentle seas
and run thru the mire and the mists,
on a lover's mystical journey.
