The morning

The morning

A Poem by 外人 (Gaijin)
"

Been forced to write it for English class, hope you like it :)

"
Shy, the sun shines,
its pinky light kills the night,
a new day comes from the highest heights,
new hopes, new goals come with the sunrise.

Evil darkness fades away,
as Sol and his mighty horses bring us the sun,
witches and giants power have none,
while Freyr's star keeps dangers away.

A new day within me grows,
a sparking light nobody knows,
the fire I need, to get on my feet
and fight against my fears.

Author's Note

外人 (Gaijin)
Put some viking mythology inside the poem to make a boring homework be a bit more fun (I LOVE vikings), so:
Sol in viking mythology is the one who carries the truck of the Sun,
Freyr is the god of the Sun's light (and many other stuff ...)
Witches and Giants were considered evil beings by viking mythology
The whole poem is based on the viking concept of the dawn as a temporary victory of the positive powers of light upon the negative ones of the darkness.

"witches and giants power have none" should have read "witches' and giants' power have none"

"Evil darkness fades away,
as Sol and his mighty horses bring us the sun"

These lines give a wonderful mental image of a powerful man riding in a chariot being pulled by 4 horses (2 black 2 white) dragging behind him a glowing ball that brightens as it moves pat the horizon.
I love movies about mythology....might need to read some ....
Wonderfully done

I like that first stanza, and I also like how you put something into the write to spice up your write "boring homework" such as vikings.
