By chance and yet by punishment

I have found you.

In the dwelling of ice and snow,

you are the warmth,

to set a path in that darken land.



Oh how your dear loveliness

has wrought burdens mischief to me,

my dear maiden.



My thoughts are of you,

the flame within the ice land.

You give me such loneliness,

by being so far.

You are an ill thing to me.

You are an omen and will cost me gravely.



Yet my love for you,

shall take better judgment of me.

Surrendering my pride; my magic sword.

The sword to protect me on the day of Ragnarok.

Without second thought I will give it,

and wait these nine nights to wed you.

Gerda, my dearest giant maiden.

This is another poem on the viking mythology. This was about how Frey feel in love with a giant maiden from Jotunheim. And how to have her he had to give up his sword that protects him for her, basically give up his life for her.

Anyway I hope you enjoy!

Alas, love affects even the Gods. =)  This is a nice retelling of the tale, which is quite a crucial one within the story.
