The Jotun King' s Feast
That only the strongest can reach the Jotun king's hall.
Constructed of granite and marble, trimmed in red gold,
Its walls were made thick, to keep out the wind and cold.
Two massive doors made of the very finest of pine,
Open up into the great hall where the Jotun's dine.
Long tables run along both sides of the great compound,
Leading up to the high seat where the king was crowned.
In the middle of the dining hall two great fireplaces sit,
Where whole trees are cut, and with kindling wood lit.
Jotun maidens wait at the doors, the guests to meet,
As servants show the invited, each to their honored seat.
When everyone is in place, the guests patiently wait,
For the great Jotun king, who it seems is always late.
Then slowly, and with grandeur, enters their Jotun lord,
He nods his approval, the feast begins, the mead is poured !
