Tall Ships, Tall Tales?

By Katy L Walsvik

I have been to the bog
And for peat's sake i felt
Overwhelmed with a feeling that
I could be Celt!

My research was brief
I have not turned the page
But I'm learning to search
From a wizardly sage.

This land of my forebears,
These Norsemen of old
Had hair of the flame
And bronze to spin gold.

Good Odin, Strong Thor,
Could this possibly be?
That one of you felt
Great love with a Celt?
And together made possible: ME?
