Kathryn's Love Part II

Part Two 
The Battle of Epona Plains
 
Carnage and Glory
The Vikings
Wreaked upon
The unsuspecting few
As they came shore..

Our King called upon
All those could
Hear the Horn of
Warning near.

So at it was
They say the two met
On the plains
 of Epona.

Yadnar The Viking,
A giant of a man.
So fierce his battle cry.
But our Welshland Prince
Stood his ground
No fear he showed
That day.

The din of battle ceased,
As the two faced each other.
Blood and sweat,
Splattered their faces and clothing.
From foes and friends 
A like.

Yadnar came rushing,
With screams of Murder,
His Ax held high.
Prepare to die! 
He cried.

But the young prince
Did not tremble,
Not a weakness he did show.
As he nocked his last arrow
And let it
Fly.

The arrow flew and 
found it's mark
In the throat of
the Viking Chieftain.

Yadnar gasped
and fell to the ground
At the feet of the 
Welshland Prince.

In horror the Viking raiders watched,
As the Prince severed
The Yadnar's head from
His body.

It's over, It's done!
Your leader has gone 
To his God.
His body I give you
But his head is mine
As punishment
For your deeds,
Here today!

So Take it back 
To his father and kin
And never return
To Welshland again
Or your fate will 
Be the same
As his..

So the Battle of Epona was
Over and the Vikings 
Sailed away,
Black sails mourning
A headless body
was stowed.

Songs were made
And sung to celebrate the day.
Their young Prince
Had killed the Viking
Chieftain raider...
Yadnar,
Son of the Viking King
Gundar Nills was dead..
And his head 
Was ours.
