Poetry Tuesday: In Praise of a Sword

Full title: In praise of a sword given him by his prince, by Colman mac Lenini, 6th or 7th century Ireland.

Blackbirds to a swan,
Feathers to hard iron,
Rock hags to a siren,
All lords to my lord.
Jackdaws to a hawk,
Cackling to a choir,
Sparks to a bonfire,
All swords to my sword.
