Pennsic Poem for King Alden and Queen Constantina

Antonio Giordano da Sicilia
Pennsic War (July), 2009 (A.S. XLIV)

Alden destroyer / dread bringer of death
His sword bloody / sings Tyr’s song
Flocks of ravens feast on fat flesh
Lover of Tyr / leader of Angels
Freya’s heart calls him to hearth
Constantina calls him / conquered this King
Sif’s hair crowns her / her grace Idunn’s gift
She is his song / she is his soul


"Her Majesty requested something “Viking” in about two hours for a Royal Feast that Their Majesties were attending and Duke Frederick [of Holland] did his best to give me a quick primer on Skaldic Verse and as such, he deserves credit as teacher and editor." -- Antonio Giordano da Sicilia
