An Ode to Runes

I know how to sing,
With runes, written by my friend,
They´ll enlighten my soul,
And let me in.

I sing with Fehu that gives me wealth,
With Uruz I will keep my strength,
Thurisaz will protect me from giant´s curse,
Ansuz will bring me close to him,

Odin, the great one eyed master of that which I seek,
With runes of knowledge that I use to speak,
He will embrace me as I go, undaunted,
Unafraid, straight on my course

Raido will be my way,
And Kenaz my light,
Gebo my gift, and the end of my flight,
I circle around the tree

The Yew, the great and mighty path,
I will see into the eye of creation,
My soul to entwine forever in the web

Wunjo is the joy that I will receive,
Hagalaz hails me, no reprieve, no stopping,
I must move on, through frozen lands that grip me close,
I will not fall, but lift myself up

Nauthiz will give fire, my needs fulfilled,
Isa holds, my heart is still,
Jera turns another season,
The ice melts down, the path appears

Eihwaz, the bridge that I must cross,
Pertho holds secrets, long-time lost
Algiz, valkyries fly into the scene,
Sowilo’s sun above me reigns

Teiwaz judges me, fair and right,
Berkano helps me grow fast,
Ehwaz is my partner, my guide,
Mannaz is all that is me, my generations, my pride

Laguz the many lakes, I will drink,
And as I travel across the tree, Inguz spurs me,
Othila is the home I seek to find,
The home of Asgard,

The fort I approach, I seek entry,
And then - what do I see,
The rise of Dagaz, the light,
The top of the tree,
All the runes I have sung,
For I know, to follow Odin
Is the way I must go.
