23 (who?)
Oh of the wises you were
you were favored by Odin
how he did prize you.

But now your fate 
shall weave a new path
of your doom to be.

An on this path
your beauty 
shall make you belong to another
the daring young hero Agnar.
Doomed are you Brynhild,
for you have enraged Odin
never again shall you walk upon Asgard.

And now the Norns begin to spin
the threads of your mortal destiny.

Sorrow grips dear Odin
as the wises of Valkyries 
shall never be among his halls in Valhalla.

And as your fate continues to weave this path
Odin bows his head before you
But you anger of his bitter use 
of the mortal warriors 
is strong.
And you turn the all father away,
Asking only of the strongest and fearless 
of mortal men
shall claim you as his wife.

Dear Brynhild 
your fate has woven to it's last strand 
as Odin stabs your flesh
with the thorn of the Tree of Sleep
and carries you off 
to the mountain Hindfell
through the wall of flames.

And dear Brynhild 
you shall have as you wished.

And there dear Brynhild 
you shall sleep 
'til your dear warrior comes
and wakes you.

this is part of the Viking mythology. It's kind of like the frist sleeping beauty.^^

Hope you enjoy!

You're welcome. ;-) 
We do not wish to decline anyone's work.  It's easy for us to move things into the correct folder, but as the group grows, we will have to begin to decline some work that isn't properly placed.  For now things stand as they are and we still accept nearly everything, unless it is clearly outside of the groups theme.
Thanks for your understanding with this matter and In the future, we hope to see more of your work in our gallery folders. :iconvikingwarplx:
