Rollo - Gange-Rolf.(Translated by Wilhelm Pettersen.)Fierce son o' the North, he graved his historyBy valor's mighty sword forged by Victory.In high-beaked ships o'er turbulent seas he wentAnd on fair England's shore first pitched his tent.Exiled from home, om Neustria's shore he foundA home full worthy of his great renown,And here he gathered hosts of heros braveWho fought to conquer or to seek a grave.Of Roman and of Franc he left no trace,But planted in the land a new-born raceWhose courage blended well with reason's sway.This pirate-chief to faith oped wide his soul,And as a statesman played a founder's role.His sword made wide th' horizon of his day.Rouen he ruled as duke, the while kings fearedWhen Rollo's battle-ry, "harou," they heardRising from ships that anchored 'neath the throne.In lofty strains the Scalds his deeds proclaimed -Him History one of her heros named -Founder of Normandy, Old Norway's mighty son!
