Kolfinna's Song

October, 2009 (A.S. XLII)

Do not weep for a warrior gone
For we shall drink again, ere long
Don't look for me on hill or ridge
You'll see me soon - I guard the bridge

Odin called me to feast at his hall
His valkyries came though I gave it my all
A warrior born I gave my best fight
Too soon I went to the land of night

Twice I wore roses of gold and white
I fought for my King and he called me a Knight
From my breast sprang forth life's blood of the moon
Hear my wound song sound - I was taken too soon

Do not weep for a warrior gone
For we shall drink again, ere long
Don't look for me on hill or ridge
You'll see me soon - I guard the bridge

Ever did I live with fire and pride
Chivalry and honor at my dear Svenn's side
Remember well my laugh, recall my joyous smile
For we are only parted for a little while

I call on you now to live life for me
To sing out my name to the winds o'er the sea
I will stand fast here until the day
When I'll walk at your side as you come my way

Do not weep for a warrior gone
For we shall drink again, ere long
Don't look for me on hill or ridge
You'll see me soon - I guard the bridge


"Written to commemorate the passing of my dear friend, Duchess Kolfinna Kottr, KSCA, OP. Kolfinna left us at the hands of H1N1 in October 2009, and died with steel in her hand, as a true warrior; I performed this tribute for her memorial at Great Western War. " -- Syele von der Rosen
