Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #31 Týr

Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #31 Týr

A stunning new approach to the myths the Vikings loved; enlightening and challenging for the novice and veteran alike.

The Gods and Goddesses of the Nordic Mythos Prose Poems were created following research for Gods Bless Ya!! Rock Opera with Alda and Sigrun Bjork Olafsdottir and a forth-coming book with SigRun Viking Art & Design.

Týr      

 

Always God, never-changing North Star he who buys peace with a limb was all before and anew now. When worlds end remember his agonising hound-bitten death was for you. Thank Tyr for the beer barrel that made the party possible.

Of The Sky

 

Sky God, fostered of Óðin, born of giants; Tyr Hymirsson Óðinsson

Bringer of barrels

Self-sacrificial

Hand-loser

Bravest of the Warrior Gods

He keeps mortals safe

Fenrir-binder

He is of the twelve who sit with Óðin

Tyr is from the before

A Precursor

The Germanics called upon him in war

Thousands of year of a one-handed God

Tiwaz all encompasses

All worlds under one sky

Look for justice in his northern star

Come for him Tysdagr

Tyr means god

Look to the Old Norsemen

They called upon the Tivar;

The God

Skirnir brought him Gleipnir; dwarven ribbon

He who contained their fiercest enemy

Rising above hardship is expected of Vikings

We laugh at suffering and accept it as life

Look to Mirkwood for the coming of God-death

He who will die in the end at the teeth of Garm

    Hi Ade,

    Many thanks for your latest prose poem. I understand this is the god who gave his name to Tuesday, with other Norse Gods giving their names to the other weekdays. The names of Saturday and Sunday, however, are Roman in origin. Isn’t this typical of English inconsistency and muddling through?

    My Outlook system has a rather irritating habit of slinging emails I want to keep into the Deleted Items folder. This, for some reason, particularly happens to emails from your good self. I can only conclude my laptop harbours some kind of a grudge against Vikings – perhaps its early digital ancestors were attacked, hacked to pieces, and set fire to by marauding Viking IT whizkids?

    Love,

    Julie xxx
