Drop everything.
The blackbird –jewel on
the crown of the chimney cowl–
must be granted a fair hearing,
given the final word.

Translations

The Battle of Maldon

“In this translation I attempt to recreate “The Battle of Maldon” as faithfully as possible while roughly imitating the original meter and including the alliteration that both defines the Anglo-Saxon verse line and creates its unique music. Though the beginning and end have been lost, the poem is probably nearly complete.”
