The Mead Of Poetry, a new poetic account of an ancient Norse tale, inspired by Tolkien and written in the old Norse form of Fornyrdislag.
Original poem, written & narrated by Celestial Elf.

The Mead of Poetry (Old Norse skáldskapar mjaðar), also known as Mead of Suttungr is a mythical beverage that whomsoever drinks 'becomes a skald or scholar' able to recite any information and solve any question. The drink is a vivid metaphor for poetic inspiration, often associated with Odin the God of 'possession' via berserker rage or poetic inspiration.

A Word On Odin in the context of Poetry;
Odin ; The Old Norse noun Óðr may be the origin of the theonym Óðinn (Anglicized as Odin), and it means "mind", "soul" or "spirit" (so used in stanza 18.1 of the Poetic Edda poem Völuspá). In addition, Óðr can also mean "song", "poetry" and "inspiration", and as noted has connotations of 'possession'.
