Ragnarok

Back to Dazdya

    I
The universe grew dark,
and dark,
and darker than the shadows.
In cracks a world of death appeared.
It swallowed, everything.
From all around a thunderclap,
a drum within a tremor.
The only things left standing
were the stones set in a ring.
    II
The people grew aware
of neverending slaughter,
of armies and their enemies,
the ending of the world.
When they saw mighty Thor
lead the legions of their fathers,
they hid and willed the drums away,
not comprehending.
    III
When giants stormed the Asgard gate,
they failed to understand it.
When Odin made his final stand,
it chilled the hearts of Man.
But, just in time to witness fate,
they saw the Heavens plummet,
and, with the world about to end,
they believed again.
