Valkyrie

Riddaren_rider_by_John_Bauer_1914

she paints the cobalt sky with light
a gift of stars for wanderers
bright hope for weary travelers
to guide them through the dark of night

to help them set their course aright
to lead them on a path secure
she paints the cobalt sky with light
a gift of stars for wanderers

soaring on the wind she takes flight
to rise up to Valhalla’s shore
to lead brave heroes slain in war
to their reward for well-fought fights
she paints the cobalt sky with light.

Passage

More than a rainbow
for souls called to Valhalla,
passage to Asgard.
