Gefjon Project Day 2

February 3, 2017 Leave a comment

So now I am inspired to do a month of devotional poetry and song for Gefjon.  I am counting the two prayers I last posted for the start of this project. This is the prayer I wrote for Her yesterday. I will have another prayer for Her later today. 

Charming of the Plow Prayer to Gefjon 

If any know how to Charm the Plow, it is You

If any know the work of claiming land, it is You

If any know the work of tilling the darkness of Jörð, it is You

If any know how to carefully cultivate the grove, it is You

If any know the work of bringing in a hearty harvest, it is You

If any know the work of a well hewn hall, it is You

If any know the work of a healthy hof, it is You 

If any know the sacred work of the gyðja’s charge, it is You

Hail Gefjon!

He waits within the natturhaus

Toasty and warm

His mug filled with cool water

From the offering-well topped off once more

 

They bow and pray in thanks

For the mighty timber that supports them

For the warmth that surrounds them

For the comfort of a loving home

 

Sometimes they bring him recels

Sweet and strong by turns

Sometimes they bring him food

Steak and potato, carrot and milk, honey and bread

 

Each keeps well theirs and the other’s home

Each caring for the other together

This is the way of things

So both live well
