Heimdall

Grass listener, Wave-born, far-sighted, fair warning, nine-mother-man, honey-worded wooer, Heimdall is a towering safeguard till Horn Blow; his feet feel rainbows.

 

The sea is within him, the alert one

Less sleep than a bird

He watches for you from a hundred leagues away

Sees you night and day from far

The sound of the wool growing on the backs of the sheep

is music to his ears

Grass growing across the plains sings

At the steps of the rainbow

By the doors of Himinbjorg,

His hall is Cliffs of Heaven

Nine worlds will hear his horn

When fetched from Mimir’s pool the worlds will end

Gjall-blower will be his name that day

All men are born of him

His honeyed words birthed all

Of the twelve gods of the golden age

He is of the golden teeth

Goldtuft he rides

To all ceremonies

Where he wisely argues the case for the betterment

Of the old Gods he knows well the end

He foresees

Let him tell you what comes

In the reflections in mead let him come to you

Eagle-eyed he can help you, forewarn you

The White God king-maker

He Rig the Celts see as king

Runs like a ram when you call for his aid

 

Of Nine Mothers

When waves form one woman

Where nine is the number

And so there are so many souls

Beings of femininity of the number nine

They are the waves and they unify

To become one wave

A birth wave

Flowing for them comes

Their son

The son of nine mothers

Son of the waters of life

Far seeing, far hearing, ever alert, ever watchful

From them flowing

It is Heimdall
