The Storm Gods

The Storm Gods is a fantasy poem about the supernatural beliefs of the Vikings as a violent storm comes thru, and then passes
©2011 by Jon Gutmacher
The Storm Gods
They cometh
They bringeth the rain
Thor’s hammer doest pound
again and again

the thunderclaps strong
the lightening bolts strike
the animals shudder
all huddled
with fright

Oh, Odin!
Oh, Odin!
Protect us from harm!
call on the Heros
save ships
and our farms

For the Jotnar are angry
the Giants are quick
they throw their bolts
at us
the rain comes
too slick

And as we ride out
the rough of the storm
we drink
quaffs of Ale
until it’s
all gone

And then in the distance
the thunder recedes
the clouds break for moonlite
which comes thru
with ease
the stars shine
the pathways
the waves cease to roll
the ships lie at anchor
the bells
do not
toll

And fall we asleep
as fires die down
while sentries do watch
all safe
all around
