The Vikings Dream, a Northland Story

Waves crash with word from Scotland
Warblers answer with yawning skies

Rocks washed up from last night's storm
Blaspheme glory, fought for Rome

Pushcarts filled with bravery tell
Of battles waged, regret for sale

Winter scoured laws they passed
Before the titles pressed in clay

Gulls enjoyed a calm sea float
While Ravens spoke in lightning bolts

Far out to sea, inside my mind
Lilies dance and pour red wine

I'll pay two- pence if you will sell
That spruce bough's dream
The Vikings tell

When I look out, upon this earth
I see a land, that smiles with mirth

And when she smiles, back at me
I'll know my dreams

Rest

Peacefully

    I forgot to say while it was now one of my favs: Gulls enjoyed a calm sea float While Ravens spoke in lightning bolts Far out to sea, inside my mind Lilies dance and pour red wine When I look out, upon this earth I see a land, that smiles with mirth And when she smiles, back at me I'll know my dreams Rest Peacefully ... Oh heck, I just like the whole thing!

    Oh and Aaah ... this was a dream-cast spell as I read it. It flowed short & directly, but it was powerful, like one of those long-ships ... it had that nostalgic touch that I can only imagine a viking would have ... or ... a Jimbo ... this is going into my favs ... MoonBee

    Jimbo, I love 'Raven' lines/imagery in poetry, and your line, "While Ravens spoke in lightning bolts", is very awesome -- it reads so well out-loud too! You beat me to the words with that one(Ha!). I dig the entire poem though, it has such a strong premise for me.

    A great couplet! Especially the way you wrote and developed this one.
