Wrap Me Up in Blue
Allfather I have seen you travelling through the worlds.
Hat dipped down over lost eye; your words won't be ignored.
Greybeard you have led me along the rainbow's way.
What there would you teach me; what is left to say?
Greedy and Ravenous; wolves plod at your side.
Thought and Memory; soar the world so wide.
Grimnir what did you gain upon that windy tree?
Runes and mighty songs; nine nights of misery.
And what do you see peering through the well?
Peering through the world within beyond the muddied veil.
Did drinking quench your thirst; fill the well within?
Was that draught of wisdom all you wanted to win?
And as I meet you here along the rainbow's way;
I finally recognize your face and your beard so grey.
Nine nights times nine; I have wandered and have sought.
The wyrd of my life entwined and tangled in the Valknot.
I have swung upon the tree in the gusty gale.
And for the runes did I reach; but fearing....I did fail.
In the quest for wisdom; I was pierced by your spear.
And hung there dripping blood; soaked by my own tears.
And now I stand before you; as I have always been.
Seeking still the wisdom; I so long fought to win.
And when this all is over; and the sacrifice is due.
Ride to me upon the storm; and wrap me up in blue.
