365. The Gods' Device
I do not understand the divine power that guides my hand,
Or what it was that filled my heart with the great gift of story,
Was it the Norns who placed Skaldic vision within my command ?
Or are the Gods using my mind as their personal repository ?
Either way something was with me as I walked in that sacred land,
A great and powerful force that wished me to sing out their glory.
In the ancient Isle in the north there was lit inside of me a fire,
And through the many years the memories continue to entice,
Like Geysir itself I constantly erupt with great emotion and desire,
And no amount of praise, number of stories, or poems will suffice,
Nothing will extinguish the storm in my mind that burns like a pyre,
And until the day that I die I will continue to be the Gods' device !
