Viking was a Common Germanic word which appeared in Old English even before any Norse invasions could have taken place.  The Old English form of it was wicing (from wic 'a settlement' and the termination -ing meaning something like 'pertaining to'), and the earliest sense, found in the early eighth century, was 'robber' or 'pirate', for settlements in those times were commonly brought about by force, and to the inhabitants displaced by them the new settlers seemed much like robbers.

-- C.L. Wrenn, The English Language (1949)

Dylan: "approximately 1000 miles" (live, two songs, 1993 Supper Club shows?)

So easy to enjoy your Hrothgar series of poems, Tom. "…sobbing there/battering upon boat hull with bent and broken buckler/bared the bench-boards abroad/spread beds and bolsters…" got me itching to raid the neighbor's cabinets for that last bit of aquavit. The sad Cunningham poem and Montana pictures seem a common, sobering story even now. 50 years ago and 50 hence? Thanks.

Thanks, Tom. If there's anything the Danelaw needs more of these days, it's Easy.

Easy is relative. With a dictionary on the table, a wiki-reference check-in & Poetry Foundation searchs I can find a path. This is a 600-level course, man. I have nightmares about missing the final. Got to actually listen to Cunningham read several poems this afternoon! That was awesome! And I’ll be the old fella in front row tomorrow.
