The first was intended to be an example for my Galdr-Book, but I think I’ll end up using the second one for that because the alliterating staves are more clear in that one. Anyway…
The Very First Attempt: Galdr to Sink a Far-Off Ship
Monday, February 19, 2018
Windborne boat, you now will sink
When you hear my baneful song
Calling storm and squall.
Rains will pour and flood your decks,
Your passengers the sea will drive
Betwixt its teeming teeth.
Bones the sea will take into
Its watery sands, and there it shall make tombs that time forgets.
My Struggles Grant Me Strength: Galdr to Endure and Thrive
Thursday, February 22, 2018
My form obeys my wants,
My mind obeys my will.
Hear me now and listen, my steeling soul.
I see my destination;
A path, I design.
For this task, my own strength will suffice.
Within my chest, my lungs strain and struggle, But they breathe the air in the highest, thinnest skies—they struggle, and I grow stronger.
