Kathryn's Love Part IV

Gundar Nills Sails Into the Night!
Part Four

A lone Viking ship
With Black Sails,
Pounding the waves
In the midst of 
natures fury.

The worse the weather,
The more the Gods 
Looked on with 
Favor.
 
Gunder Nills, the Viking King
Hated and loved 
This journey.
Everything about it 
Was wrong. 
 
The wrong time of year,
The winter storms,
He did not care,  
A  Welshland Prince
 Had killed his son,
A headless corpse
Returned. 

Revenge fueled his lust,
Pride drove him into 
Madness. 
As Gunder Nills 
Lamented  the loss 
Of  his first born 
Son.

Waves crashing over the bow,
King Gundar did cry.
Revenge is mine!  
Killing will to be done,
Screamed Gunder Nills, the
Viking King.  

His Grey blonde mane 
Matted his skull 
From the salty spray
That night.

Damn you all,
You motherless sons.
Row, he yelled.
Row, he bellowed 
From the helm
Of his Viking Ship.

A Demon he was,
Crazed with mourning
And loss.

His  Gods listened
That night to
Gunder Nills,
The Viking King
Driven Mad by
Sadness.

The Sail's filled 
and the Viking ship 
Pushed Southward 
Under gale force winds,
With Gunder Nills
At the helm.
Into the blinding
Winds and rain..

Black Sails
Of warring furled
The return of
The hated Viking King,
Gundar Nills..
Two hundred
Ships he 
Commanded.
