The rotter of bodies
Ravished my friend
But she fought
Like no other foe
Weary but brave
Eir has well blessed
Writen as a kviðuhátr for Raven Haraldson, who beat cancer.
Kviðuhátr was an 8-line alliterative verse form, resembling fornyrðislag except that its lines alternated between three and four syllables. Alternatively, other sources say it is line 3, 5 and 7 that are 3 syllables with the rest being four. The alliteration can also carry over from one line to the next (so a word in line 1 alliterates with a word in line 2, a word in line 3 with line 4, and so on).
