Das Valkyrie – a fantasy poem of Norse Mythology
This is a fantasy poem about the Norse Valkyrie, the beautiful supernatural women who rode across the sky to  recent battlefields to chose from those warriors slain in the battle, only the bravest.  These would be brought to Valhalla, where they would reside with the Gods until the final battle between the Gods and  the giants at Ragnarok. The words, rhyme, and spellings were deliberately chosen for their inflection and effect, to give it a German or Norse feeling.

She road a horse on thru the sky
and all around the warriors cry
das Valkyrie!
das Valkyrie!
takes the dead
from battle field

Der Valkyrie es beauty fair
Das wind does’t blow
thru flowing hair
das Valkyrie
das Valkyrie
A shield is by your side

En unt des day
in bloody war
das Valkyrie comes thru the moor
das Valkyrie
das Valkerie
Valhallah is your place

Unt none can run
Unt none can hide
from Valkyrie
come from der sky
das Valkyrie
das Valkyrie
your sword cannot be stayed

Das ravens fly
around your face
your sword does’t swing
in Odin’s grace
das Valkyrie
das Valkyrie
you choose among the dead

And warriors soon to Odin’s side
das Valkyrie take for that ride
to sit Valhalla
to fight once more
at Ragnarok
the final score

Oh Valkyrie
Oh Valkyrie
Ein see you coming on
