A Viking Crest Ablaze

Flying alone

   over fury enthroned

 

 Its colors reign free

  and clear

 

The enemy stained

  all freedom regained

 

Covered in blood

  spent and dear

 

Stitched yellow and blue

  its messages true

 

That Svealand does

  not run

 

To hang steadfast

  and slay the past

 

And carry our glory

  sum

 

A crest ablaze

  through fire and haze

 

Horses hooves high in

  the air

 

Now honor bound

  on sacred ground

 

Heralding death

  —our cross to bear

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
