"Gold and Honor Purchased with a Hero's Blood"
(Based on the Signet Classics edition)

The timeless tale of a valiant warrior
Daring to cross foam-crested waters
With a goodly company on a proud-prowed ship,
Desirous to ease the Danish king's distress,
Bold Beowulf, the great Geat, did land upon
Denmark's grief-ravaged shore, there to offer
Unselfish service against the gross blood-fiend, Grendel.
Alone among many brave me, Beowulf feigned sleep
To greet without weaponry the merciless monster.
