330. Never To Be Forgotten
The sacred resting place of a mighty warrior king,
A heroic life that sadly missed out on history' s page,
No skald to tell his story, no minstrel his deeds to sing.
Archaeologists dug up the ground where he was laid to rest,
Carefully studied the remains, and recorded every artifact found,
They desecrated the holy grave site, but they did their very best,
When they were done the king was returned to his sacred ground.
The man, the warrior, this splendid king still remains a mystery,
Only the wind that blows over his grave still whispers his name,
A king of great wealth and power, whose deeds are lost to history,
A leader who only in his rediscovery has once again gained fame.
As an Asatru Godsman, in my sacred duty I will never falter,
To the gates of Asgard, and further to the great heavens beyond,
I raise my horn high as I proudly stand before my blessed altar,
And honor my ancestors for which I forever share a sacred bond.
