A collection of twelve terzanelle poems influenced by Norse mythology, specifically regarding the afterlife. The poems explore key locations and concepts of the Germanic underworld. Yeah, this is pretty obscure stuff even for fans of the mythology.

The terzanelle is French/Italian adaptation of the terza rima to the villanelle form. The poems are 19 lines long and ten syllables each. The poems are composed of five triplets and a concluding quatrain. I enjoy the puzzle-like nature of this form and the subtlety of the repeating lines, the variations in meaning.

It was ok. Not realy what I call poetry though. It was more aimed towards a story.
