Wild is the winter, but waiting is worse;
How far afield are my folk?
I seek sturdy strikes of sword upon shield,
A test of the mightiest of men.
Let them exhaust their excellent power
And feast on the fruit of the farm.
Odin's hall boasts less bounty than that
Which towers tall over our tables.
I want for the word-hoard wielded by skalds That honor the hardiest heroes.
Of old too they tell, of the tolerant baron
And baroness who bled for this bunch.
Listen and hear of new lords arriving,
Acquiring the coronet from the king.
Where are those who were before us?
They journey to joy at Ymir.
