The Vikings lived a 1000 years ago
In Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
Sometimes called Norse,
They're gone now of course
But we think of them still today.
There were kings who ruled the lands,
And there were farmers and traders.
Jarls were the richer men,
Others were fisherman,
Some were Viking raiders.
Vikings believed the afterlife was
A great hall called Valhalla -
A huge feast where
The only men there
Were warriors, men of valor.
