This song was requested from my first Ansuz patron for Frigga. When I am able to record the audio for it I will update this post.

Refrain:

Holy Mother Frigga

Allmother

O Allmother

Allmother Frigga!

How sweet Your heart

Fierce in love

Here we live (Refrain)

How strong Your hands

Firm in care

Here we are (Refrain)

How great Your eyes

Deep in knowledge

Here we are seen (Refrain)

How clear Your voice

Set in power

Here we know! (Refrain)

You hold us close!

You hold us tight!

You hold us, Your children, in love! (Refrain)

A Prayer to Eir and Mengloth in the Midst of a Pandemic

March 13, 2020 2 comments

Hail Eir, Aesir Goddess of health and healing!

Handmaiden Whose hands hold harm at bay

Whose apothecary keeps medicine and magic from every World!

Whose skill in assessment and swift action saves lives

Hail Mengloth, Jotun Goddess of health and healing!

Whose mountain home holds every healing herb

Whose hands have healed every harm

Whose knowledge and wisdom is wide as the Worlds!

Holy Ones, help the medical teams to be careful in their work

Holy Ones, help the analysts to be diligent in their work

Holy Ones, help the communicators to be clear in thought, message, voice, and words

Holy Ones, may each person remember and be able to tend to their health

Holy Ones, may all who can help take care of one another’s health

Holy Ones, may we be cautious as we go forward. Let neither panic nor apathy rule us. Bless us that we may use our wits well, let us keep ourselves and one another safe, and let us make the changes we must make so we may each be healthy and whole.

Hail Eir!

Hail Mengloth!

Ves ðu heil!

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 first Ansuz patron for Loki.

I am the biting fly, hovering at your ear and reminding you I am still here

I am the lusting horse, dragging you from your work to have some fun

I am the writhing serpent, protecting you from the plague bearers

I am the barking seal, diving into waters you fear to see

I am the grinning fox, teasing you to remember there is always beauty and laughter to be had

I am the wise salmon, showing you the way to twist so you understand

I am the little flame, warming your heart when it grows cold

I am the inventive spider, showing you how to knot so nothing escapes your grasp

I am the gentle breath, stoking the embers of your heart to bright flame

I am the Shapeshifter, for every shape is open to Me

I am the Many-Skinned, for I have shared skin with many

I am the Walker Between the Worlds, for I have walked them all and will again, always, forever!

I am Loki!

I am Loki!

I am Loki!

Hoofbeats
Pawbeats
The clack of spear
The stretch of sinew
The loosing
The biting takes
Drags down the prey
There You are

Predator and prey
The undergrowth spattered
The worms well-fed
The horned and the hungry
There You are

The serene lake
The grove of apples
The oldest forests
There You are

The pounding heart
The feral instinct
The steeled nerve
There You are

Patreon Poem/Prayer 1 -With Us

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

With Us

From the first breath into Askr and Embla’s mouths You have been with us

From that gift of önd You have been with us

You filled us up with vigor and frenzy

You set our minds alight with Your Gifts

You set our souls in power and ferocity

You gave us the power to live and persevere

You gave us the gift of speech and understanding

You gave us the gift of galdr and magic

You gave us the ways to work our will

You have ever been with us when Jörð bore our Ancestors on Her shores

You have been with us in every age

When our Ancestors turned from You, still You were with us

When the offerings stopped and the stories were the only torches that burned with Your memory, still You were with us

As we came back to You, we have come to realize this:

You will ever be with us

Hail Alföðir! Hail Forni! Hail Óðinn!

We Walked Among the Dead

November 5, 2019 Leave a comment

We walked among the Dead today

We walked side by side

Before, beyond, behind, with broom in hand, we walked where They still lie

We came upon the Warrior Dead, those Who held the Line

We came upon the Straw-Death Dead, who peacefully reside

Yet came we upon the Head of Graves, of this great and powerful host

What gave us pause and tears to shed were the youngest that hurt her most

She could not say why she sobbed, only that she must go

And in her face, as I kept pace, I saw the place of fear and woe

It has been said that tears are gifts unto the Dead

Each drop acknowledges the life from the mortal coil it shed

We must each take our rest deep within the Earth

I can only hope I have been an Ancestor of worth

(I began writing this September 8, 2014 and finally found the words to finish it.)

Visions of Dionysus

November 4, 2019 1 comment

Strange dreams heralded Your coming

Intense, vivid, real

Ivy and mead, yes, but more:

Drums in the distance, heavy and echoing

Spears and swords gleamed

Fangs shone

Something deeper and darker

Slather and blood dripped

Grinning

You stir them up

Drinking

Dancing

Howling

At first I cannot follow your footsteps

I cannot follow your rhythm

I cannot dance with you

I am too afraid

You stir them up with that bestial grin

That snapping of teeth and pawing the earth

That thudding of Your thyrsus

You stir them up with that roar

That shaking of Your body

That unbridled ferocity

You stir them up

You stir them up

You stir them up

How can I do other than follow my soul

As it leads me to dance

As it leads me to release

As it leads me to rage

Your wolfish grin invites

The forest unfolding

Come and be who you are

Io! Io! Io!

O Enualios!

O Holy Wild One!

O Dionysus!
