Dagmar Halvdan, Award of the Scarlet Banner (prologue only), 2007

She called on Æthelmearc’s homeland
And left the raven’s feasting;
Accompanied by five men
They stained their weapons crimson.
The warriors they felled there,
All of them great fighters,
Towering like oak-trees
Glory was won by Dagmar.



By THLaird Colyne Stewart. Based on Thorgils’ verse to Gudrun, regarding vengeance for Bolli. From the Laxdæla Saga, 1245. Written with THL Þorfinna gráfeldr.
