Patreon Poem/Prayer/Song 50: For the Huron River

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 request was made by Maleck Odinsson for the Huron River.


Hail to the Huron River

Called Giwitatigweiasibi by the Wyandot

Called Ana by the Druids who know Her

I hail You

Your blessed waters flow

From the blessed swamp

To Lake Eerie, called Erielhonan or Eri

I hail You

You, Who carries trade

You, Who carries countless boats and canoes

You, Who carries and cares for countless fish

I hail You

You, Who bears your waters with care

You, Whose paths are gentle

You, Whose waters quench the throats of thousands

I hail You

Your form carries countless homes

Your blood is carried in countless millions

Your body bears countless lives

I hail You

Hail to You, beautiful Míkilvaettr

Hail to You, great Vatnvaettr

Thank You for allowing me to know Your cool waters, Your sloping shores, Your many children

Hail to You, Huron River

    • Yup, it runs through a good chunk of the southeast of the State. It is 130 miles long running through Dexter, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Belleville, Flat Rock, and Rockwood.

      • Very cool! When I first got there, I saw there was a river, and asked what its name was to various folks, but some of them didn’t know or couldn’t remember, and then I looked closely for the sign posting what it was (as there usually is in WA), and eventually someone remembered and told me. I thanked the River when I moved away, certainly, since I had not properly thanked it when I arrived since we hadn’t been introduced! 😉

      • Very cool! Thank you for sharing that. I’m glad that even though you did not get a good introduction you were able to say farewell and do right by the river.
