The Mead of Gunlodd

If you have tasted the Mead of Gunlodd

That Odin so masterly stole

Flying back to Asgard

His mouth used as a bowl

Droplets falling on mankind

Creating poets as he did go

Was that the Mead that fell on me

Giving rhymes to give to thee

Or am I just a yelping dog

Barking loud at the wrong dead tree

Only others, not I, can say

I enjoyed this saga kept my attention until the end

That seems a good place to start

Wow - what a history lesson . Well done.

Words to warm a heart

There is nowt as comfortable as home

and that comes across in your poem

Commented like a poet

Did he really know it

Sure he didn't guess

So my answer must be yes
