To Asgard!

Poem from Falling Out of the Sky. Poems about Myths and Monsters by Piercey, Rachel and Wright, Emma

Come across the rainbow bridge
to Asgard, where the Norse gods live!

Odin is the ruler here,
he strokes his beard, he shakes his spear,
he keeps a pair of wolves as pets
and flies a horse who eight legs.

Come across the rainbow bridge
to Asgard, where the Norse gods live!

Frigg is queen, and she can see
what every person's fate will be,
and whether it will turn out well
or badly, though she'll never tell.

Come across the rainbow bridge
to Asgard, where the Norse gods live!

The strongest of them all is Thor
whose hammer causes thunderstorms.
He crushes mountains, likes to flirt,
has two goats pull his cart to work

Come across the rainbow bridge
to Asgard, where the Norse gods live!

Freya's husband roams the worlds,
so she cries tears of solid gold.
In feathered cloak, boar at her side,
she goes to seek him far wide.

Come across the rainbow bridge
to Asgard, where the Norse gods live!

Loki is the trickster god:
he causes trouble, then he's off,
and even Odin cannot make
this wily wicked god behave.

Come across the rainbow bridge
to Asgard, where the Norse gods live!

Their world is full of beasts and swords,
serpents, giants, magic wars.
They feast and fight and feast again
but even Asgard has to end...

So while there's still a rainbow bridge:
to Asgard! where the Norse gods live...
