~ Poetry by me ~


Hail to you, Odin, you who wear so many masks.
Seeker, I seek you. Hear my prayer.

Prayer to Hangatyr

I am hungry, and nothing can sate me.
I am thirsty, and there is no water.
I am helpless, and there´s noone to help.
I am bound, and cannot come free.
I am wounded, and cannot find healing.
I am dying, and life slips past me.
Odin! Rider of the Tree--
Fetter-Breaker, set me free!
Teach me runes that I grow whole--
Or should death take me, take my soul.
