Freyr

“Oh, proud and upstanding one, Freyr” All thralls say, “Thank you my wife seems happy but please let the boar increase the happiness of the sows” No wonder men build shrines and maidens find secret places. Follow Freyr to the forbidden.

Born of Earth

Born of Earth so long long ago

He is reborn anew upon joining the Aesir

Cutting his teeth on his own rules

 

See how everything grows below

Look up to him for encouragement

Plant seeds in his honour

 

For he resides in the light now

Among elves in Alfheim; they dance for him

Gullvieg’s magic plays within him

Njord born the Vanir are his essence

 

Fertility-finder. Growth-spurter. You want him

This is your God of plenty

Be thankful

Be plentiful

 

Freyr Place

Let the sun shine at his word

Let the rain fall at his whim

Bring forth fruitfulness

We step into dell-home

To dingle

To springform

We dress and we decorate

For you God

Be plentiful

 

These are the shrines and the spaces

They are still here for to find them

Freyr-home nature places

Walk and sense for to find them

 

Forest temple

Worshipful meadow

Flowerbed heartland

Still centre sanctuary

 

See pool rings and seed fly

Here sounds of being surrounded by beauty

Watch as wings flutter by

Feel the sap rise

Be at one with your body

 

Throne View

Yet peace bringer is reckless

These are his own rules

He goes where he dare

As Freyr goes, you go

Decide what is right and go live there

In your heart’s centre

 

At times he will appear as a child

Be childlike and wild

Let not this fool you

It is part of the ancientness

 

This is peace and plenty

For all prosperity

Let livestock grow wild and free

Multiplying resultantly

This is of birth and of prospering

As all of this earth increases

So does your legacy

Feed, refresh and be remembered

Heartily

 

Boat Birth

As the boat has a birth shape

So does it symbolise

There where we came from

Where we are wishing for

 

We are born

We go to die

We are born

We

 

All of the gods can go sail with him

Force-bringer

Skidbladnir-sailor

Rocking waters will part for him

As ancient waters break

Into the breaking waters we flow from the birth-shape of the ship

 

The sail is hoisted and the breeze comes

The sail is hoisted and the breeze comes

Such is his way

The sail is hoisted and the breeze comes

 

Promise Spurt

All of this promise is within

As the seed waits

As the root sleeps

And the fish swirl

So is it all there to unfurl

 

As gold-bristled boar Gullinbursti was forged for him

So dwarves Brokk and Eitri celebrated strong gifts

In his heart is a warrior, stronger for being slow to rouse

In his loin the boar, it is charging

 

Kindred of gleaming surrounded by shining

He melted the ice-heart of the most illuminated

 

Bring Births

Lord of the sun, of the rain, of the harvests,

He is the bringer of births

Bathe in the rays of his sunshine

 

Yet forever be noble

Take not by force ever

Let all come to you

Through your kindness

Through your strength of what is righteous

Nothing so wilful so heartfelt can be wrong

 

For he would face even the fiery sons of Muspell

Giants of flame beset him

He will let it all be

For the sake of love

A gift given fairly from the heart

Rather to suffer in fairness

Than to burn in rage

What is done is done, and

What is done is right

 

Barley Byggvir, Skirnir the shining one

Such spirits rejoice him

Surround him, support him

As the crops return bounteous

With the rising of the sun
