I love this poem first for it's a great story about going avicking which was the vickings favorite sports...sacking and looting...and though some will think me "bizarre" for saying this coming from a woman...
I love it for its violence for it is what's it's all about...sacking is not a gentil love story...it's pure violence and it is well described in your poem.
When one is able to feel what one is reading it is because it is well written from the author.
