The Falls of Skógafoss

Posted on Updated on

iceland

Viking lore like roaring falls

Plunge deep in rocky chasm


Waters from great Skógafoss

Put Iceland’s beauty on display


Rugged land like no other

Heady mix of fire and ice


Volcanoes dormant still remain

Glaciers blue with water pure


Give life to all the huldufólk*

But hidden elves will not show


Unlike the stars in Arctic sky

Snow falling to the ground


Hides footsteps in the plunging mist

Secrets guide the long departed


** — Huldufólk are the legendary hidden people of Iceland.
