Seaxlēoþ

Upon sea-mount comes he
seax-kin, sword-kin

A name celebrated
In the bones and barrow

On spear’s edge tossed,
this wave-washed warrior

Salt-tempered son,
upon Seaxland shores strode he

Wilderness tamed,
heathlands hewn and harvested

Earth worked and tilled,
by iron-hard hands

And with iron-hard might,
bodies lay broken, blade-bitten

Cleaved wide by stony-edge,
Seaxnēat’s war-work wrought
