Poem: "The Forging of Brisingamen"

This poem came from the February 18, 2008 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from tonithegreat.  It has been sponsored by DW user jb_slasher.  The poem belongs to the series The Asgard Eddas, and you can read more about that on the Serial Poetry page.

Update from Kajones_writing

There are lots of new worldbuilding and fiction posts from kajones_writing this week.  These include "17. Labyrinth," "18. Pendragon," "19. Edge," "20. Oracle," "21. Sterling," "22. The Stormkin," "7a: The Nox Gadael, continued," "23. Athare Calendar," "24. Witches," and "25. Sorceresses."  "Races of the Web" is an invitation to suggest new species for some of the worlds.  I've already pitched in a few ideas there.  More would be welcome.

"Elodie: Recording Souls" is a creepy little horror story about a mad scientist's secretary.  "Panthea: Back on Kniroch" is a crossworld trading story.  "Liadan: No Choices" is the first story about magical bondmates and the awkwardness that can entail.  "Mira: Leaving Raenarin (Part 2)" continues her escape.  "Zoe: Meeting the Nox Gadael (Part 2)" goes further into the conversation between Zoe and her new friends.  "Astrid: Arriving in Little Hill (Part 2)" tells more about the Nox Gadael and their new refuge.
