Heres the prompt:
The Geat people built a pyre for Beowulf, / stacked and decked it until it stood foursquare, / hung with helmets, heavy war-shields / and shining armor, just as he had ordered. / Then his warriors laid him in the middle of it, / mourning a lord far-famed and beloved. / On a height they kindled the hugest of all / funeral fires. . . . / They extolled his heroic nature and exploits / and gave thanks for his greatness; which was the proper thing, / for a man should praise a prince whom he holds dear / and cherish his memory when that moment comes / when he has to be convoyed from his bodily home.
–Seamus Heaney, trans., Beowulf
