Read THE RUNES ON WELAND’S SWORD of Puck of Pook's Hill, free online book, by Rudyard Kipling, on ReadCentral.com.

  A Smith makes me
  To betray my Man
  In my first fight.

  To gather Gold
  At the world’s end
  I am sent.

  The Gold I gather
  Comes into England
  Out of deep Water.

  Like a shining Fish
  Then it descends
  Into deep Water.

  It is not given
  For goods or gear.
  But for The Thing

  The Gold I gather
  A King covets
  For an ill use.

  The Gold I gather
  Is drawn up
  Out of deep Water.

  Like a shining Fish
  Then it descends
  Into deep Water.

  It is not given
  For goods or gear
  But for The Thing.
