Bealdgar Thorbeornsson, Award of the Orion, 2012

Sure glad wood-shaper maketh
More skilled than any other;
O Tree amid Earth’s tree
Look at what he makes of thee!
No wood-shaper so adept is
That he may win look from me:
One man is so able,
And well beloved is he.

Proclaim throughout the realm that We, Rylyn, Queen of Ealdormere and Patroness of the Arts and Sciences, and Edward, Our King by right of arms, are right mindful of the skills in which Bealdgar Thorbeornsson has displayed in the art of wood-turning. Therefore do We wish to recognize him with Our Award of the Orion and give him the right to wear the badge of the award. Done by Our hands and seal this 25th day of August, anno societatis XLVII, while sitting on Our thrones in Our Canton of Bryniau Tywynnog, at Middle Ages on the Green.

By THLaird Colyne Stewart. Based on Olof Sunbeam’s song from The Saga of Viglund the Fair, 1901, English, transl. William Morris and Eiríkr Magnússon, from the original 'Víglundar saga', 10th or 11th century.
