Swing the hammer, shape the blade –
Leaping flames about it played.
Heat it, beat it, beat it down.
Shape it. Beauty efforts crown.
Silver, gold and precious stones –
Jewellery and bracelets hone.
Spear-points, shields, knives to hue,
Arrow-heads and sword-blades true.
Mine it, dig it underground –
Pickaxe, shovel, veins abound.
Copper, tin and iron bring
Heat the forge! Let hammers ring!
