Tamsin Kitto, Award of the Orion, 2013

Many are held             in high esteem
Skald and poet                        foe-render and Viking
But none so high         as those who create
Tamsin Kitto is such a one      whip-corder, weaver,
Binder of naal             Vor knows her work
Called before thrones              knealing artisan
Before Nigel, Konungr           Adrielle, Drottning
Giver of minds-worth             she is bestowed
An Orion is given        with as many strings
As Tamsin has talents             while in Bryniau Tywynnog
At yuletide wassail                 on the last day of Frer-mánuðr
Forty-eight years         since Ymir was rended
And from his bones    was born the world

Words by THLaird Colyne Stewart, done in the style of Old Norse verse.
