The Gods battled Baldur fought Thor Rain against Sun Rain won a lot. Choosing battlefields land against sea swiftly striking humans below. Odin, All-Father hearing wailing stops his children sets them Earthward choosing champions to finish fighting. Thor to Thorfinn calling kinship; Baldur chooses Bitor answers. Norns are watching, spinning, cutting lenghts of living; one to watch them, one remembers, one to tell all. Chad fells Thorfinn; Thor entreats with Earth, his mother, that the fallen be raised again. Thorfinn counters; Bitor now falls. Baldur now asks Frigg for favor; Chad stands again. Final the combat. No more favors can save Thorfinn whom Chad has felled. Baldur's champion Prince of Mistland Sun is victor. Wind still chases.
Written at/for Mists Spring Coronet:
"While this is not a required piece[of the Bard of the Mists], it is considered good form to have a piece in time for the Investiture of the Lord and Lady of the Mists. The weather that day had been awful, with scattered storms of rain and sleet mixed with brief glimpses of sun. And lots of wind; to the point that two pavilions had to go down before they failed. To top it all off, the event was advertised as a Viking style event, so most of the populace duly wore Viking garb. The finalists were Chad Bitor who beat Thorfinn Magnisson in the third bout." -- Margrethe Astrid Ravn
