Something I learned today: A kenning is a figure of speech in which two words are combined in order to form a poetic expression that refers to a person or a thing. For example, "whale-road" is a kenning for the sea. Kennings are most commonly found in Old Norse and Old English poetry.
Isn't that beautiful? Whale Road.
(I am putting more whale cards in my Etsy shop, if you are in the market.)
