--Beowulf Fights the Dragon-- He saw by the cave he who had many virtues he who had survived many times the battle flashes when troops rush together a stream running from the stone arch-- a stream of fire He could not enter for the dragons flame Beowulf was angry the lord of the Geats he who stormed in battle He yelled into the cave The hoard-keeper perceived a mans voice and didnt plan to ask for friendship Flames shot out from among the stones hot battle-sweat The ground dinned The hero raised his shield against the dreadful stranger Then the coiled thing sought battle The war king drew his sword an ancient heirloom with edges unblunt Each of them intended horror to the other Stouthearted stood that war-prince with his shield upraised waited in his war-gear The dragon coiled together went forth burning gliding toward his fate His shield protected life and body for a shorter time than the prince had hoped That was the first day he was not granted glory in battle The lord of the Geats raised his arm struck the horrible thing with his ancestral sword but the edge gave way that bright sword bit less on the bone than the war-king needed After that stroke the cave-guardian was in a savage mood He threw death-fire-- widely sprayed battle flashes The gold-friend of the Geats wasnt boasting of victory His war-sword had failed not bitten home as it should have that iron which had always been trustworthy This wasnt a pleasant trip that famous king Beowulf would have to leave this earth would have against his will to move elsewhere So must every man give up these transitory days It wasnt long before the terrible ones met again-- The hoard-keeper took heart heaved his fire anew He who once ruled a nation was encircled by fire no troop of friends strong princes stood
