A Valkyrie Invocation

My sister Valkyries, fetch-wives of Odin,

Swan Maidens and Mead Maidens, come forth,

Daughters of Freyja, sworn Battle Maidens, we call,

Those who ride the battlefields, Choosers of the Slain,

We welcome you, on this day, as we sing praises for the gifts you bring,

Oh, sweet Valkyries, embrace our fallen…

Ride them into the sweet halls of Valhalla.
