The Words of a Hero
The words of Duke Tiernan and the tale of the beginning of the Shipcrew.
- Listen land-bound, and let your folk hear
- The grave sea-growl god-granted verse,
- Of spray-splattering ships, sweet in a man's ear,
- Of wide-faring warriors, of Waveraper's prowl.
- In ancient days dire, Daegar Fair-hair,
- Gunnar's-get , golden Hersir,
- Announced at winter's-end accolades he would win.
- Sailing the swan-road wealth he would seek.
- At Ursulmas he urged, "Upon Aegir's road
- Let the sea-skilled men seek word-fame."
- Fame undying, foretold Fairhair, would belong to those
- Who wavered not and Waveraper's crew joined.
- Closely clamored those keen on battle-fame winning.
- Of Battle-breakers gathered, best were those
- Who heeded the call of the king's Hersir.
- Mighty were the men made his shield mates.
- Of those battle brave men,
- One stands before you this day.
- He comes e'en now to lay claim to that which, by right of arms, is his.
- Behold the Warrior Prince, Arnsbjorn Tiernanson.
The Other Half of the Tale
- Of heroes bold, woven words are many,
- to speak of the Gift of Grace the battle bard must unlock the true mead of thought.
- Listen now to the words of Arnsbjorn unfurled in honour of Swan White Inga.
- Let them travel the swan road of the mind.
- On the breath of Njord words swim swiftly,
- Peace Givers name on the nine planes.
- Gold of Goddess given,
- Fair is she, who won hero's heart.
- In eyes of blue shines souls strength,
- Brow's white woods,
- cover skies light gleaming.
- Midgards flower makes hero more.
- Life toucher gives soul’s gift.
- Sunbeam heart helps happily.
- Gentle Peace Weaver pleases soul’s eye,
- Heart of life lifts laughter.
- Golden soul sings softly,
- to heroes hard heart.
- Shining smile shows love,
- lighting the path of life.
- See now golden Sif standing,
- She who makes Hero's heart happy,
- She who strengthens swift battle snake wielder,
- Inga comes now to this place, to claim that which, by right of inspiration, is Hers.
- Minds worth of Warrior worthy, and Gracious Gold Giver are spoken,
- Now Dread King, and Glorious Queen, do Prince Arnsbjorn and Princessa Inga seek entrance into this court.
