Lausavisur for Oskar of the Wood

From EastKingdomWiki

Written by Toki Redbeard in drottkvaett. At Twelfth Night in A.S. 39, King Thorvald Halvorsson (“Thorson”) knighted Oskar at Twelfth Night.

The king collects planking,
culls the finest sword-trees.
Standing in storm’s forest,
stout beam of hard branches.
Strong will be strake garboard,
stretched along keel oaken.
Relied upon always,
oak of the king’s dragon.
