Written by Toki Redbeard for Sunnifa Heinreksdottir

Words of Wessex are wound around music
the song of the sinew sailing forth from a verse-ship
steered by a cop who stands midst lore-wind
for the love of words and love of her people.
Now Sunnifa the scholar surveys the list-field.

Near the holm she stands strong for Haakon,
The breaker of walls who bears her favor
on a quest to carry the crown to her hands,
make his consort the princess on account of her honor,
her quiet humility and caring manner;
kindness to all. That would be a great queen.
