He Walks Alone
Poetic form: Acrostic
High-One, these words are for You to receive.
Every skald takes from Your gift, I believe.
Wanderer, One-Eyed, Wisest of All;
Allfather, Who takes the slain to His hall;
Lo and behold, His many names still ring,
King of the Gods, and the God of the Kings.
So, by one name only He has not gone;
Atrid may go disguised from dusk to dawn.
Little do they know, who He comes among;
Only if they knew that their guest was Thund.
Not till He makes his return for Asgard
Ere they discover their guest was Harbard.
Justin Douglas Blackford
"Odin", 1970, Konstantin Vasiljev (1942-1976), Russian painter.
