A golden thun'dring tore the winds,
Their swirling portals rent-
As from on far sky-pounding steeds-
Forth from Vahalla sent!
And valor sang majestic hymns
In tribute to Thor's throne,
While galloping, stern, crescendoed now
For lo! Bursts Odin's own!
By steel adorned, those snorting mounts
With frenzied, winged fury
Did shudder Earth in frantic storm
In assemblage dreamt by Glory...
Then Dragon Prowls relinquished
Their hold of the mightful slain,
To Heav'ns fiery charge of stallions,
To ever rage, and reign...
