Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Einarr inn Kyrri Olfúss (modernly known as Brandon Bristol)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2018-12-02

The generous and bold have the best lives,
Are seldom beset by cares;
Silence becomes the son of a lord,
To be silent but brave in battle.

Cattle die, kindred die,
Every man is mortal:
But the good name never dies
Of one who has done well.

With presents friends should please each other,
With a shield or a costly coat:
Mutual giving makes for friendship
So long as life goes well.

Therefore do We, Ermenrich and Kasha of Cynnabar, grant unto Einarr inn Kyrri Olfuss Our Award of the Elephants Heart.
Let none countermand Our words.
Adapted from Hávamál (Old Norse, c. 9th-13th centuries).
