Regal, beauty merged with
Graceful bearing, greet her
Gladly for the joyful
Light she brings so lovely;
Lifting spirits as she
Passes, press the mem'ry
Pleasing mists of yestre.

"This Occasional Verse is written in drakvaet using the standard 6 syllable count with the alliteration. Many skalds of the period were noted for being able to compose such Occasional verses on the fly, and it was considered a noteworthy skill." -- Torvald Torgarson
