Walls of gold as told by lore
Prosperity that is no more
Banquet halls where feasted kings
with time did fade, like all good things

Brothers strong, kin of old
rending for the Dragon's gold
Test the metal in the fire
Spear the beast upon the spire

Born to claim the sacred ground
Bold visages valor-bound
in battlefields where rivers bleed
By firelight with mugs of mead

'Tis these days I wish to see
To down my arms and 'verse with thee
then Up the Irons! Out to war!
Those glorious days that are no more

Hey that's good

It's funny I started writing a poem yesterday for this contest but I wasn't sure if it was allowed. But I'm sure it it.. Poetry can tell a story through rhyme. Very well done friend!!
Good luck SnF from me

If I believed in an afterlife, Valhalla is the place I want to go.

A poet with perfect scansion! That was amazing! I could kick myself for not thinking of Vikings, I wish I'd thought of that.

A big "Thank You!" to my fellow readers and writers at ATS for the kind words.

It is a short poem, but I believe it conveys the wistfulness I was looking to express.

I've read through most of the other entries in this particular contest and have enjoyed them all. We are among some very creative and talented folks here.

I'm not sure about you guys, but the writing contest "themes" help me to focus and get excited about writing something. I like to write in general, but it makes it even more fun when there are others being creative around a common theme.

Cheers and happy writing!

I'm partial to Norse and Celtic mythology, so this poem tickled me.

Thank you for adding it here to share with us!
