Odin Project: Day 29

November 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Easy found is war | easier to start

a lose spark which burns the home;

The burnt husk | shelters no one

save the dead dreams in ashes

 

Hard won is frith | harder still to make

with bitterest of foes,

Yet peace in anger | saves many a life

from strife and long-held rage

Odin Project: Day 25

Blistered and burnt | becomes the tender

who sits too near the fire,

Like a speaker who gives | no space for breath

all is gasping for air

 

Patience and care, | more precious than gold

in raising of one’s own kin;

Oft is the test | put to the sword

to see if its edge is yet sharp
