Another “Deep Freeze” free family festival is set for this week-end, January 10-11, 2015 on Alberta Avenue in Edmonton. Join us!
“The Vikings are Coming Again!” so watch out !
A golden craft of Viking lore
shipwrecked, on North Saskatchewan’s shore
would journey northward never more
—it landed with a thud!
Thus this ship with sails so bright
had travelled into its final night
landed faithful, still upright, upon this foreign shore.
Here embarked this fateful few
Norse sailors armed for battle anew
draped in skins, with swords, this crew
headed up Jasper Avenue—with Hildegard at the fore!
They needed nourishment to renew,
and dreamed of grog and venison stew
pasty inhabitants directed the crew
“Go to Alberta Avenue!”
That was enough for Hildegard’s crew
“Onward to Deep Freeze—Come on!”
Having fasted and played, the shipbuilder, Sven,
had an idea to rebuild again
he knew just the wood to use for repair
they chopped down the Christmas tree in Churchill Square!
then hauled that tree down, those Norsemen with vigor
cut into planks with their saws all aquiver.
With Sven yelling orders,
it soon was afloat
those Vikings now clambered on a boat that could float
and cheered the new land
they were not to remain
but would they ever return again?
