The Falls of Skógafoss

Posted on Updated on


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.
