2014 NaPoWriMo Day 2

Death of the Nordics

For nine long days did
Odin, the all father hang
upside down from the
Yggdrasil, Tree of Life, to
learn all knowledge of the runes.

Thor, beloved son,
the mighty giant slayer,
wielded his hammer
Mjollnir, wearing iron gloves
in his goat led chariot.

Loki, a lost son
of the frost giants he was.
Loki, a brother
to the warrior Odin.
Will bring all worlds to their knees.

Huginn and Muninn,
Odin's thought and memory,
their flight through all worlds
is the reason he knows all,
but he fears they won't return.

Valkyries, riders
of the bloody battlefields.
They choose for Odin
his guests in great Valhalla -
bloody crows guiding the slain.

All Loki's children
imprisoned for all of time -
Sleipnir - Odin's steed,
Jormungandr and Hel,
Fenrir - killer of Odin.

A broken friendship
will set the worlds on fire
and the skies to ice.
Ragnarok will come to be -
bringing the death of all gods.
