Patreon Poem/Prayer/Song 7 -For Sleipnir

If you want to submit a request for a prayer, poem, or song to be written to you privately or to be posted on this blog or my Patreon for a God, Ancestor, or spirit, sign up for the Ansuz and above level here on my Patreon. This prayer was requested from my fourth Raiðo patron for Sleipnir.

Over skies and oceans you have crossed

Over land and the Helvegen itself

Eight legs across Nine Worlds

Glorious-Maned, Peerless Stallion, Best of Horses!

Spear-Hooved, Iron-Flanked, Windswept Galloper!

Sleipnir Lokison!

O Holy One, Son of a God and His Bloodbrother’s Bearer

You bring Your burdens unbowed

Through danger and Death to home and hearth

Praise to You O Peerless Journeyer

Sire of Blessed Steeds

Grey-coated Wanderer of Worlds!

  1. Apropos only of tangential matters related to this fine piece you have posted here (for which, thank you–having written pieces to divine horses and other creatures on several occasions, as you’re aware, I’m glad more people are doing this and are realizing why it might be good to do so!): have you seen Frozen 2? While many aspects of it are questionable, and in some sense parts of it are “all wrong,” as the kids say these days, other aspects of it are rather appealing on their own level and by their own logic. Anyway, just a thought…I’ve been wanting to discuss it with some proper Northern Tradition/Heathen folks without immediate eye-rolls following ,and as you’re someone I know wouldn’t do that just on general principles (at least initially!), I have wanted to ask you for a while…unless I already have and forgot that I did, which may also be the case. 😉

    • So overall I actually liked Frozen 2 quite a bit. Having a sweet baby girl who loved Frozen 1 and then saw it twice in movie theaters with the family when Frozen 2 came out, the plot is more engaging to me, the songs more fun, and I really like the respect it puts forward for the spirits. I take the Disney movies with the block salt that I carry around with me for such things. I look at it akin to Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away: they carry good spiritual lessons for polytheist kids, and for a market with a severe lack for kids in it, I’ll take it for what its worth and teach around the concepts. Heck, she already joins us in our hearth cultus and when we are outside the rockvaettir and treevaettir are among her favorites to hug and interact with.


      • I fully agree! I loved the film, I thought the story was much better than the first, and I liked a lot more of the music in this one than the first, I thought it was funnier, and I thought that the themes were a lot more relevant to polytheist/animist life than a great deal of cinema (for kids or not!) that is out there. And I’m glad to hear your daughter liked it as well!
