45. Raising The Stone
A monument to Egil, my warrior friend.
Killed by a sword through the breastbone,
That sharp blade put his life at an end.
We fought together in many a great battle,
Littered the fields with many of their men.
Escaped together once in the same saddle,
And drank horns of mead over and over again.
Now I raise this stone over your grave mound,
And carve deep runes to be read by your kin.
May this marker act as your earthly crown,
As you feast in Valhalla with All - Father Odin.
