A classic Norse kenningtation will always give four kennings


"Now for sea-steeds' trunks there is eagles' flight over land in store"

...  ships........warriors....i.e., the birds of prey are gathering, a battle is taking place.

—Havard the halt, quoted in Skaldskaparmal by Snorri Sturluson, translation Anthony Faulkes

Equation

  ship    steed 
       —— :: ——-  
       sea     road
      
       ship  = sea-steed   
       sea   = ship-road   
       steed = road-ship   
       road  = steed-sea 

to create the metaphors read the equation "across, then diagonal"
kenning haiku

Under the shifting hegemony of now this, now that science or art, the Game of games had developed into a kind of universal language through which the players could express values and set these in relation to one another.
