Galdr-Song

Woden, wandering
one-eyed, word-lord,
wind-lord, wolf-lord
wondrous wyrd

wish-giver, mead-winner
rune-father, galdr father
seid-bearer, death-bearer
wondrous wyrd

hooded and cloaked you walk between the worlds:
gand-lord, spirit-seeker, wisdom to find,
but once you wandered in another form

questing and questioning, honing sharp edge
of thought or scythe, with serpent's-glide
Gunnlod's gift-giver, deep in mountain-hall

word-breaker are you, returning mead to men,
Mimir's enchanter, shape-shifting as flight
to Yggdrasil's hanging, grim gallows-god goes

Woden, wandering
one-eyed, word-lord,
wind-lord, wolf-lord
wondrous wyrd
