Some Modern Rune Poems

Fehu

Fortune flares fertile with fair sacrifice.
For it is the lost lamentations of the Lady,
and the ravenous riches of Ran.
But everyone with it, must evade excessive envy.

Uruz

Undeniably, the mighty aurochs understands
the power under the primal plains.
And the hearty healing earth hails its swift, hoofed herd.
But supernatural strength certainly comes with suspicious secrets.

Ůurisaz

When thunderous thursar cheer the rainbow┤s throes...
Controlled force fights his frenzied foes,
and brings back the beneficial bairns.
But, the three thorns unchained threaten all.

Ansuz

Allfather answers the ancient call.
The whispering winds grant the seeker wisdom,
and the roaring steed raves to the righteous rider.
But ÷nd, the breath-of-life bounds too swiftly.

Rai­o

Riding and raiding the rich worlds reap much fortune,
as the mighty chariot marches on the mainlands.
But, the ridden are often wrongly ruined by the regality.

Kenaz

Controlled, creative fire burns the canvas into colors,
and the temperate torch tames the tedious darkness.
But,the cankerous sore can cause serious afflictions.

Gebo

Gifts graciously given make good friendships greater,
and equal exchange by lovers escalates emotional encounters.
But, sacrifice given for greed and guile, the gods only give grief.

Wunjo

Joy and Harmony are the heart of the happy home,
as toddlers track the tiny tomten tirelessly.
But, hallowed happiness is impossible to harness haphazardly.

Hagalaz

Hail, the harshest of grains, holds haven for holy Helheim,
as Hel shields the souls of the sanctified dead.
It defends the deep earth from detrimental destruction.

Nau■iz

Need powerfully pushes the body past perceptions,
as the fire of life lovingly lights the lands of the lucid.
But never confuse naturla need with notorious want.

Isa

Ice freezes the ignorant into infamous stasis,
to break free from the frozen fetters it takes need-fire flame.
It also protects the plentiful plains from winter┤s painful punctures.

Jera

Year brings the yearning youth of the yard,
and the sowing cycles reap for the conscientious caretaker.
But harvest heralds heavy only for the hard-working.

Eihwaz

Yew bears the most beneficial of bows,
and from Ydal yields Ullr┤s yawning winter hunt.
But wolf-hook warrior wields his angled weapon.

Per■ro

Lot-box orders the °rl÷g of others,
and ˙r­ upholds the ultimate outcomes.
But luck is not lavished on the lazy.

Elhaz

Elk┤s ancient antlers adorn its able crown,
and it is the favorite fist of Frey┤s fury.
Protection comes charging to the courageous and kind.

Sowilo

Sunna shines brightly with shimmering sun rays,
and the wagon whirls wearily from thee wolf.
But over-venerated victory by the volk, invents vulnerabilitiy.

Tiwaz

Tyr of the Aesir accepts the amputation,
the wolf-joint justly given to the jaws.
But the loss of loyalty and virtue is longly lamented.

Berkano

Birch and willow heated, heals the head.
The winds whisper, unwinding the white bark
and it benefits the beautiful bounty of birth.

Ehwaz

Horse hastens the honorable hero.
Such a constant companion compares to none.
But the uncaring undo the ultimate charger.

Mannaz

Man can make Mi­gar­ mighty and strong,
And many a friend was made with mead.
But the quarrelsome quickly finds his quiver empty.

Laguz

Leek wards off woesome wights,
like whit mud and waxing waters from the well.
Law must flow fluidly to further the folk soul.

Ingwaz

Ingvi brought bounty and boon for the brave Swedes.
The gestating seed germinates and grows greatly.
To the Lord, special sacred sacrifices must be sent.

Dagaz

Day destroys the darkness of deep despair.
The gods gaze gently, grant gifts upon goodfolk:
giving wisdom, gracious lore, and generous healing hands.

Othila

Odal ancestors strengthen the serching soul,
and the folk soul feeds the fire of the heart.
Heritage holistically heals health with harmony.
