Further Information

I set myself the task to write one verse every day during one year observing the strict rules of rhyme and alliteration of traditional Icelandic poetry. It was meant as an exercise in self-discipline and as training in the ancient tradition of alliterated poetry. If you are at a party in Iceland you are sure to gain a few points if you can make up a traditional epigram on the spot. I had become fairly adept at this sport. But now my verses began to go into unexpected directions, gaining speculative undertones. Then suddenly they wanted to be in book and find new readers.

Æviskeið
Litlu krakkakrílin fá
kunna orð að mæla,
angur sitt og óskir tjá
einatt með að skæla.

Táningarnir tjútta og
af tómri kæti hoppa,
viðstöðulaus vöðvaflog
vonlaust er að stoppa.

Þó að lengi þetta sker
þjaki vondsleg kreppa
allra sinna ferða fer
fullorðinn á jeppa.

Þegar er í lífsins lind
löggin næstum búin
öldungur með göngugrind
gaufar áfram lúinn.

Sumarvísa

Í dag er alveg brjáluð blíða,
börnin úti skoppa víða,
lifnar óðum lauf á trjánum,
leik ég mér og veifa tánum.

Kynningarvísa

Skúli Pálsson skáldið er,
skemmtilega yrkir,
yður býður kvæðakver,
Karólína styrkir.
