Winterwind Anthology

Brethren's March and Homecoming

by Dan J. Kuisma

Oh, brethren of mine
Raise yer drinking-horns high
‘Tis time to drink mead
And strengthen yer hearts

Oh, brethren of mine
Raise yer swords high
Dark clouds of foul ravens
Await in sinister skies

***

Oh, sole brother of mine
Sheath thy bloodstained steel
The misty winterstorm is now passing
The song of the ravens fading

Oh, sole brother of mine
Raise thy drinking-horn high
‘Tis time to drink mead in silence
Honour our brethren gone
