The Hyndla Lay

 

I who cry amber tears call to you my sister in your cave here, my sister of witchcraft or magic, my kindred, of knowledge. We have so much to share my beautiful sister, awaken for me, awaken and share.

You are in there, for your snores are like growling and your yawns like the bitch dog, do you howl at the moon in there when we could ride together?

I ride here on the beautiful boar of my sky riding to be here.

“It is your lover, it is human man Ottar, do not deny it. You shape shifter witch-crafter, usurper of lovers.”

I come. So we can win the All-father’s favour. I come to you. Together. We shall weather the trials and be there my sister. This, this is not Ottar, the Dwarves made me this. This bristling boar here is magical, glowing and dazzling and made for me.

“And then made into Ottar-form, so you can call him and ride him whenever you have a whim. It is Ottar, I smell him.”

I come here in good favour.

“You leap at night like Heidrun who goat loves. You collide with the soft and the hard and the readiness of it all. You love and you love and you leap so often.

I shall wrangle, I shall wheedle, cajole, and, at the last, I shall threaten.

You deny the gleaming one, I rise in stature and I proclaim. I who shall change in shape to gall you, who could have gifted so brightly.

I demand. I demand in flames. In searing flames. See how you doll-like lift from your solemn cave, let all dampness fly from you. For you are aflame. I encircle you!

Do not deny the gleaming witch.

You are girdled with flames.

“Ottar will prosper!” “Ottar will prosper!”

You yield Hyndla and I release you from my flames

You who could have been my sister.

I release you to your cave.

Free from flames.

You who could have been.

Freyja

The gleaming gliding one is too bright and too beautiful to look upon. Be dazzled by Freyja.

Tears of self-sorrow, ever joy-seeking, ever filled with passions and yearnings. For longing all-wished-for, come love her. She will have you; see she floats above the meadow flowers towards you.

 

Oceans of Tears

She who cried amber tears filled the seas with them

Knowing it is possible to be forever broken and to survive

To have lost and to laugh again

Passions they rise in one

Fires they smoulder no matter the boulders we must move

Long ago lover hat time is now over and others are calling to us

Calling they are waving and hoping and smiling

Let us love

Giver of Golden Magic

Daughter of Njord

We hear of her

After we hear of a shamaness

Gullvieg

She came here from them

She too is a gleaming one

They give of their magic

Wands and gold

Wands and gold

Mother and daughter

 

Falcon-skin Flyer

Witches go underworld

In the spirit shape of an animal

After dancing in a feather-skin

Falcon in mind’s eye

Spirit in the direction

Witch in the heart

Dive deep for messaging

Lessons yes

Gatherings

Witch places

Be shaman

Be seeress

Be shape-change

Dive deep dark

Witch-calling

Take the form of a bird

For to fly to the underworlds

The place of all witches in the land of death

Speak with dead kindred

Be a mistress of magic, of witchcraft

Returning with precious prophesies

Sharing knowledge and destinies

Let no legend survive

Be secret as a seer

Pure Volva

 

Goddess Seats

There were twelve sit with High Frigg

Freyja was of this twelve

She is rounded in myth and in record

She is the one in our memories

Recollected

She is the important one for us

A full story

We know her

Of the two twelves

All were equal then

Goddess and God twelve

Highs seats they see us

It is Frejya we look up to

Vanir Invader

Did that Odin in disguise

Visit old gods

Did he seek out Gullveig’s daughter

Become Od

And then be with her

Breaking her heart all those years

Did the All-father cause

Amber tears?

 

Married for a Moment

Skip about like a nanny goat

In the shadows of night

Ever gleaming

Life with love

Be active

Giants might lust for her

Cave witches envy her

Eager dwarves craft for her

The goddess of love is

Free to take actions anytime

This is what she is

Your view is your view

Her will is hers

Warrior Woman

When war comes

Call the chariot

Wild cats are flying her

It breaks her heart to be unjust

Odin he forces her

Fair if she can be

She rides over each field

“Come die for me, die for me”

Freyja rallies the good heart

Death is her blessing

And love is in her halls

Fight for her

 

Brisling Beauty

If you wish for anything

Wish for the Sun

and the Moon

and the very sky to be yours

But also you might wish for Freyja

More beautiful than anyone

More beautiful even than Frigg, Balder, or

Nanna, Siv or Eir

Threads in her dress

Bangles and brooches

Amulets, ring and ankle-pieces

It is too much to look at her

Only Odin

has strength to look at such beauty

She glitters and flashes

As does her beauty

Even her tears are gold

And the necklace…

The necklace…

The necklace

 

 

I Menglad Gullveigsdottir

I who went bald without Idun

I thank the long dead of Brisinga

I have skin

Skins

Wands

And gleaming

If ever you shall ungleam me,

Oh how the walls shall shudder

Gold-studded benches starting from the floor

My necklace even shall burst

Challenge me not

Burst

Like Heimdall does, go champion I

By Gullveig my mother-soul

By the power of the Brisinga tribe

‘Bring that fire’

Engulf me

I am the ancient

I am the Mother

Goddess of love and death

 

The wish that Freyja never wished to wish

By the clip of this clasp bring

New life to the corpses

Let each man rip each other to pieces

Pieces bring

Clasp them together

To unite and fight

Those pieces

 

 

The Menglad Destiny

Odin forced me

As no man or God should force

Loki wished it

Odin usurped it

For they are dark

 

From folk-field Folkvang

The rainbow trembled and danced

In the dark dawn

As hips swayed

As I floated

 

Those crafters called me

I knew the way

So did Loki

He followed

And learned

 

Oh

 

A choker of gold incised with wondrous patterns

Fluid metal twisting, weaving and writhing

Tribes who died are embedded here

 

Dwarves fashioned from magic

Embrace the tragic

For I can rise high with Brisingamen

 

Death wars inveigled into gold

 

As daughters and serving maidens sleep

I return so powerful to halls of folk

 

I shall keep this

The Menglad

The neck weapon

The gleaming

The Brisingamen

 

For I paid high

Hænir

Men, even we turn for Hænir’s handsomeness. Women even more so

These are the legs, this is the jaw, yet this sadly is the intellect.

Hey, everything else is in place, embrace him our future leader.

He brings the fire.

In the heart-loin

Being is more important than choice

Thinking can hang fore a bit

Live it

Travel with him, in the simple

Bestie of the best he will follow on for them

Odin-successor – world end survivor

Leave all the thinking hard till we go to war

That is what anguish and strategy are for

Peace is for living and clinging to

Swords sleep like this…

Swords sweep like this…

Is there a choice to make?

Ox-cooker, Fire-maker, Odin-brother

Salmon-eater, World-traveller, Doubter

At your side

Until the very end

Until after the end

He will hold the wand and foretell

Be at peace and talk,

Share memories,

Everywhere there are treasures,

Gaze in wonder,

If war is the only way we will think well, act wise

Until then

Rise again in Gimli,

Be rooved in gold, be at peace,

Simply

Siv

Golden-haired ever plentiful lets a lock fall your way, lets the corn grow if you compare it to her hair. Her perfume is new baked bread, her playground your fields and her dream place you market. Treat growing things well or tricked Sew will sob.

 

She came here from the old faraway

Bereft of lover

Thor would have her

There would be no other

Siv is fertility personified

Where old Godhood once was so is her heart

Now Aesir, she prospers

High in the twelve most equal

Corn-weeper call to her

See her later as the answer the harvest

If you are doing well you know her well

This is the garden, the food field, the woman

You of the food ways she travels your pathway

Elven, Vanir now Aesir-new

Perpetual and again young

She would send Ull to till for you

Just be at one with her

Be thankful for this beauty we harvest

Ve

Praise be to Ve.

Ve Borsson. Leek planter.

See the moon and stars because of his vision

and because he threw them there.

Listen, because you can.

Gap of Ginnunga is

blood red and hearth home.

Land strider

Boundaries are because of he

Know your roots and be fed

Know your place in life and grow

Where Odin gave life Ve made possibilities

Day and Night came and Ve showed us, led us

See the sparks of Muspell and the rivers of life

Warmly drink in and live safe

Land strider

Vili

Skull to the Sky Vili.

Vili Bestlasson.

Builder of the Rocking Ocean few men dare to cross;

he gave you the feeling heart to fear with

and the wits to dare with.

He made you.

Go sail.

Ocean-shaper, Map maker

Originator

Giant slayer

Ginnungagap filler

What Odin created Vili gave sentiment

Tears from eyes, drops from clouds

Meltwater ways are forged for us

Be thankful to be alive

He made you.

Go sail.

Eir

Winsome Eir dons her gifts given by women, gifted also by faithful affectionate men, ‘Heal-hopes’, she wears all your offerings so close to her skin. There are mountain halls of betterment, she gives women the gift of a climb-way, at crag-top ‘be healed within’.

She is one of the 12 and a Goddess of healing

Nearly as fair as Freyja Eir of the Menglad

Upon Inlyfjaberg – the Hill of Healing

High up here is

Comfort to the sick and suffering

Make offerings – at the high altars

Then even the bedridden can climb if they wish it

Women who climb here are cured

Atop this high mountain

Necklace-glad women divine in their service

She even guards men who ask from danger

She is fruit of Yggdrasil in her heart

She is necklace-glad of the Menglad

Wish to climb to her
