Jormungand

They've sailed their Dragonships here to the upper-midwest and have settled. Occasionally as I travel the back roads that twist along ridges like the long back of a great serpent and suddenly I'll stumble upon a symbol of the ancient past.

"His dragon with her sails of blue,
All bright and brilliant to the view,
High hoisted on the yard arms wide,
Carries great Canute o’er the tide.
Brave is the royal progress — fast
The proud ship’s keel obeys the mast,
Dashes through foam, and gains the land,
Raising a surge on Limfjord’s strand."
(The Song of Canute, Saga of St. Olaf)
