Counting Fountains

Fifty, fifty, fifty-three
Fountain counting comes too easily
Words from numbers being freed
Not from Suttungr’s poetic mead

Ought I hang on Woden’s tree
Sacrifice myself to me
Just to find a simple rhyme
To complete this verse on time.

Sad, here’s no high poetry of note
‘Metered words’ is all I wrote
