Yeah, well spoken, Leelee. I agree with you,
By the way, as I said, I've some new poetry, but today, I realized it's true concept. It's about love. In a good and nordic way.
It tells a tale of Rókhar Ironhand and Elewyn Silverhair. Two nordic warriors, who fell in love with each other, when they were at their twenties. And since of that day, they had served Thor for nearly two full decades. But on Elewyn's 42th birthday, she fell in battle, and this tragic death caused all of the other things and events that were to come in near future. Leading up to Rókhar's death. (PS. I know it's a hard concept for younger people to read, but my works don't involve gore or such things. It's not too detailed in that field, O' Council. So I guess I've the green light on this? ^^)
So, this is:
In the Memory of Rókhar Ironhand and Elewyn Silverhair
'This part tells about the day, when Elewyn died. Rókhar tries to write a letter to Elewyn's parents, to tell them about her death.'
Part I : Will she sleep for an eternity (Rókhar's thoughts about Elewyn)
I used to have so many tales to tell
But after the day when you fell..
I couldn't even think about them..
And as I now write this letter to your parents
None of it's content makes any sense..
I am still deeply in love with you, no matter what I do or say..
I hope that you know.. I hope that you know..
We had so many things to do, so many journeys left, so many unspoken words
And here I just stand and wonder if you will ever return
And as I walk down the windy path that leads to your forest grave
I try to close my eyes, and become one with the silence, but I can only think about things too painful to say
My hands are shaking, and my eyes are full of tears, I've four thoughts upon my mind..
'Will you sleep for an eternity, my love? Will you sleep until the very end of times?
'Will you be there when I've to go? Will you be there, when I've to leave this world far behind?'
'Just like the previous one, this part tells about Elewyn and about her feelings for Rókhar. And though she would like to meet him again, she still hopes that he would carry on with his life, and not give in to grief and despair.'
Part II : And like the wind, he rides across the roaring waves (Elewyn's thoughts about Rókhar)
There he stands in front of my grave
But he doesn't know that I am still here
Even though I now exist as a lesser spirit, I can still see, feel and hear..
My days are so long without you, my love
There's nothing here in the golden halls of Valhalla
To replace the joys of life..
I long to see you once again, but I know that your life must go on
So, here I just stand in the embrace of morning rain
Hoping that you still do remember this song..
'And like the wind, he rides across the roaring waves
Seeking for new challenges, for new journeys..
And for something that could change the course of his sorrowful days
But what if all of his deeds have been in vain
What if he cannot live without those painful memories..
Only the gods know the real truth, but it is so clear..
He cannot live without his beloved muse..'
Part III : A cry of victory
'And this part, it's events occur a year after Elewyn's death, and on a misty morning, Rókhar and his men heard a battle cry. And it could mean only one thing. It was a call to arms. They were at war.'
On that morning, we all left our homes to serve the gods in this great war
We gathered in a small village, and brought our armors, shields and swords
And as we began to march towards the rising sun, we cried: 'Hail, in the name of Thor!'
There was no escape, no chance to turn back, upon this night, our enemies would fall!
Riding forth into the heat of battle, the brave warrior's of Midgård
Their hearts know no fear and their fighting will is unbreakable and strong
Thousands upon thousands, all of them clad in golden armors, so brightly they shine in the light of sun
A cry of victory echoes throughout every land and forest, a new era has begun
And after countless months of fighting, they finally surrounded the last of their enemies
They had sacrificed so much, and luckily those cold and rainy nights were all behind
And as Rókhar, their leader, stepped forth to face the remaining warriors of Loki
One of them challenged him, a combat to the death, and he accepted, by unsheathing his sword made of golden steel
And for long they fought, but in the end, Rókhar proved to be victorious..
But he didn't know that his enemy would do something so weak and low
He was backstabbed, and it was a fatal wound, and so, still smiling at his victory..
Rókhar, the leader of all armies of Thor did fall..
Part IV : Meant to be together in life and death
'And so Rókhar's spirit left it's mortal coil and sought out the realm of Asgård. And there, from the beginning of The Rainbow Bridge, he awoke and saw his wife, Elewyn, sitting beside him.'
And as he slowly opened his eyes.. He saw Elewyn sitting by his side
He wondered could it be real, or was this just one of his wishful dreams
But then she touched his face with her pale, but soft hand
And on that very moment, Rókhar learned the truth.. They were dead.. And so he said to her:
'I cannot believe my eyes, but if we're both truly here, then shouldn't we walk across this bridge, shouldn't we go to the golden halls? I long to see the gods that reside high above.'
'Maybe this was meant to happen, but I still hoped for you to carry on with your life. But if you're truly here, then we have one last chance to make things right.'
'I never knew that this day would really arrive, and as I now look at you, my eyes are full of tears of joy. Maybe we were meant to be together in life and death, until the very end.'
And by crossing the rainbow bridge, they finally arrived to the golden halls
And by bowing before Odin, he gave them the blessing of all gods
So much suffering, so many battles behind, so many journeys to make, so many hidden treasures to find
There are so many things that they both left behind, they've so many things to understand..
But instead of accepting it all at once.. They just smiled and crossed their hands
'Even death cannot keep us apart from each other!' they cried, and the sky answered. And as it began to rain, Rókhar looked at Elewyn, and as she nodded, they both cried for one last time:
'Let the journey begin!'
