The Saga of Gunnlaug the Worm-Tongue 
and Raven the Skald, by Anonymous. 
Translated from the Icelandic by Eiríkr Magnússon and William Morris 


A tale from Iceland, 800 years ago. 

In a dream of quarrels and death 

The birth of fair Helga is told 

Cross the north seas ventured for fame 

At the call of kings, hearth bereft 

Wounded pride, spawn'd of a sensed slight 

When tongues fail, sharper blades prevail 

Falcon soothes the cloak wrapt wound 

Fair one pines and fades from the light. - Summary by Fritz
