Christina: The Viking Funeral
"The Funeral of a Viking" by Sir Frank Dicksee, 1893


Mother, what is happening?
Why do you weep, pray tell

Your father has died
my little one, before
he even knew you well.

He is sailing his last
long voyage

He is journeying
far away

Never to be seen again
on any other day

Say goodbye to your father,
my dear one

Remember him in your heart
for someday we will join him

and never again will we part.
