Do You Know Me?
you know me, Shadow?" said Wednesday. He rode his wolf with his head high.
His right eye glittered and flashed, his left eye was dull. He wore a cloak with
a deep, monklike cowl,
and his face stared out from the shadows. "I told
you I would tell you my names. This is what they call me.
called Glad-of-War, Grim, Raider, and Third.
I am One-Eyed. I am called Highest,
I am Grimnir, and I am the Hooded One.
I am All-Father, and I
am Gondlir Wand-Bearer.
I have as many names as there are winds,
as many titles
as there are ways to die.
My ravens are Huginn and Muninn, Thought and Memory;
my wolves are Freki and Geri; my horse is the gallows."
ghostly-gray ravens, like transparent skins of birds, landed on Wednesday's
pushed their beaks into the side of Wednesday's head as if tasting
and flapped out into the world once more.
