30 DoA #23: Original Composition

591_1black_smith_s_hammer

23. Your own composition – a piece of writing about or for this deity.  This is a piece I wrote back in 2008, when I was having a lot of fun exploring traditional Anglo-Saxon poetry forms. Apologies in advance for any obscure kennings.

 

The Smith’s Secret

Lame Lord’s toil drives home
Longing for feathers’ song
Hammer in hand, he waits
Holding with tongs bright gold
Welder of wyrd enthralled
Wily crafting most highly
Sheltered souls he’s smelting,
Soldering, this torn god.
