Worth wanting. Want Iðun. Be born again. Her lover, her child, her follower. Go hope Apple-biter, be the Epli of her eye, you would shrivel without her.
She is carefree as the sun softly caresses her, wondering and pottering upon the garden slopes above her hall. Here she has her orchard. Many fruits and flowering things, powerful herbs, much grows in her garden here, you might wish for if you thought of her. This is the orchard however. This is the place of forever. She is the custodian of the golden. The golden apples of youth flourish within here.
Bragi has many lifetimes to compose poetry because of her. Her apple lovers last forever. Her husband rejoices to know her forever.
Just think of the power she can bring here. Fertility, prosperity, immortality in memory and fame can be claimed by the truthful who adore her. Skip now and laugh for she is here with you.
Be glad of her basket, be glad of her gladness and wellness and life. Go live at the very thought of her. Have hapless happy adventures. Be trusting as she is. For tricksters may make Gods fail and grow old. They may fool us the mortals, but vitality and youthful beauty will return to us eventually. Be trusting, be faithful to thoughts of joy. The open heart of youth cannot be downtrodden for long.
As with the Hesperides she is there for us there is reincarnation of spirit if we wish it, youthfulness and fertile vigour. Go dance with her. She made all the Gods glad. Brought them life and again life. All is afresh when she dances here.
Think of her as you garden. Think of her as you love.
