Told by the Northmen


“So perish the old Gods!
But out of the seas of Time
Rises a new land of song,
Fairer than the old.
Over its meadows green
Walk the young bards and sing.

Build it again,
O ye bards,
Fairer than before!
Ye fathers of the new race,
Feed upon the morning dew,
Sing the new song of love!

The law of force is dead!
The law of love prevails!
Thor, the thunderer,
Shall rule the earth no more,
No more, with threats,
Challenge the meek Christ.

Sing no more
Oh ye bards of the north,
Of Vikings and of Jarls!
Of the days of the Eld
Preserve the freedom only,
Not the deeds of blood”

Written by Longfellow

We are all Bards now!

Not the deeds of blood”
