222. Garm : Hound Of Hel
Forever vigilant it protects Eljudnir, and its misty lands.
In front of the rusty gate known as Helgrind it patrols,
And attacks everything living that possesses their souls.
Great drooling monster, the hound of the Mistress of Hel,
Prowling silently in the mist, where only the dead now dwell.
With a badly matted coat, and blood streaked upon its breast,
The creature stands alert, the best of hounds will never rest.
Garm has a jaw made for grasping, and teeth grown to rip,
In anger it is the flesh from the bodies of the living it will strip.
If you ever have a mind to travel down to Hel' s moldy door,
Be forewarned, for you will die when you hear Garm' s roar !
