Song for Sif

Rowan's strength is Thor's salvation;
Berries red are witches' bale;
Blossoms white give gentle blessing;
Rowan fair will never fail.

Her son is the glory of starlight in winter;
Her daughter is might that wisdom demands;
Brighter she shines than sheaves in the sunlight;
Power and holiness flow from her hands.

Rowan's strength is Thor's salvation;
Berries red are witches' bale;
Blossoms white give gentle blessing;
Rowan fair will never fail.

Hail to the Lady, the Light of the summer;
Hail to the Rowan, holy and fair;
Hail to the Goddess who hallows the harvest,
Beautiful Sif with the sun in her hair.

Ann Groa Sheffield
