WIDSITH

WIDSITH

Widsith is a long Anglo-Saxon poem. It consists of about 150 lines of verse. It is an account of the wanderings of Widsith, a supposed wanderer. He tells of his wanderings, speaks of the feudal halls in which he sang, and how men loved his song, and gave him gifts. In short, Widsith recounts the places and the people the hero has visited.
