To speak beneath the somber air

Oh, where the cattle meet!

To find a belle to stay awhile

And linger as we eat

To kill a mate, two may suffice;

And let us acquiesce

To making war with all of them

Before you take your rest.


Hint #1:

Let me make your journey shorter! Try to think below the border...

Hint #2:

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey...

Ok. I've been staring at this for too long. I'm not even sure I'm on the right track but I figured I'd take a stab. Maybe it'll help someone else?

To speak beneath the somber air Thursday (speak beneath... thunder?)
Oh, where the cattle meet!
To find a belle to stay awhile Friday (lover of odin)
And linger as we eat
To kill a mate, two may suffice; Wednesday (i'm sure odin killed many)
And let us acquiesce Monday (resigned to go to work)
Before you take your rest. Saturday (before day of rest)
To making war with all of them. Tuesday (god of war)

So far I'm leaning towards Sunday but I haven't figured out all the phrases or if parts of phrases are connected and so forth.

    $\begingroup$ I could if I wanted but that’d probably suck. My wife even hates that I rhyme when we...uh, make dinner. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 1, 2018 at 3:33
