The Longships by SonjaSnowbourn The Longships by SonjaSnowbourn
(Gudvangen, Norway)

At night we hear his voice
a salty windswept wail
the sea calls us home
at dawn we raise the sail

Through the fjords we glide
pass guardians of stone
until we leave the coast
to find those shores unknown

~ poem by me ~

Any chance i may use this as a reference on perspective for a painting i'm making for my mother?

Beautiful poem by the way!
I wish i could always write something beautiful to go with an image.

Du har alltid forbause meg og gir meg en god følelse i meg selv liker sommerfugler i magen, hyggelig å føle at mens høre i Midgard. Diktet tar meg bort så jeg var der takk for å være deg. Du er virkelig en spesiell person.

You always amaze me and give me a good feeling in myself like butterflies in my stomach, nice to feel that while hear in Midgard. Your poem takes me away as I was there thanks for being you. You are truly a special person.

Oh thank you so very much :aww: I'm very glad to have captured the atmosphere of that summer's night, when some of us "modern vikings" went sailing a reconstructed viking ship on the fjord. It was a wonderful experience!

Thank you :) This is the fjord outside Gudvangen, a valley on the west coast of Norway, which every summer hosts a grand Viking Marked. The longship is named "Håkon Håkonsson" and yesterday, after the marked was closed for tourists, some of us vikings went sailing :aww:
