The Warrior's Barrow - Scene 5

SCENE V

(BLANKA, GANDALF from the right.)


GANDALF.
(Aside.)
It is too late!

BLANKA.
O, there he is again!
What do you want?

GANDALF.
Quick,--quick, away from here!

BLANKA.
What do you mean?

GANDALF.
Away! There's danger here!

BLANKA.
What danger?

GANDALF.
Death!

BLANKA.
I do not understand you.

GANDALF.
I thought to hide it from you,--hence I went
To call my people to the ship again
And sail away; you never should have known,--
The trumpet warns me that it is too late,--
That they are coming.

BLANKA.
Who are coming?

GANDALF.
Then know,--
The strangers who once harried on the isle
Were vikings like myself.

BLANKA.
From Norway?

GANDALF.
Yes.
My father, who was chief among them, fell,--
Hence must he be avenged.

BLANKA.
Avenged?

GANDALF.
Such is
The custom.

BLANKA.
Ah, I see now!

GANDALF.
Here they come!
Stand close behind me!

BLANKA.
Man of blood,--away!

SCENE IVBLANKA. (Alone.) He is gone! Ah, perfect stillness Rules upon the barren strand. Perfect stillness, grave-like stillness Rules my heart with heavy hand. Came he then to vanish only Through the mist, a ray of light? Soon he flies, a sea-gull lonely, Far away into the night! What is left me of this lover? But a flower in the dark: In my loneliness to hover Like a petrel round his bark!(The war trumpet of the Vikings is heard from the left.)BLANKA. Ah! What was
