Freya

I will hail the Goddess of gold,
Hostage to the Gods, delight of Her kin.
I will praise Her with amber and wine, flowers and honey,
for She is Goddess of beauty, eroticism, and desire.

I will celebrate Her abundance,
Her gifts of wealth and fruitful plenty.
She brings luck, fertility, and creative fire,
and Her presence is found
amid the moaning cry of lovers,
hidden within the rhythm of their entwined limbs.

I will call Her luck-bringer,
for Her fingers are deft at untangling
the snares of a gnarled wyrd,
and sometimes the tangles are of Her making.

I will praise Her as strong in magic,
cunning, skillful, and battle-wise.
I will summon Her forth with song of steel,
for She is fierce and shows no mercy.

The field of combat is as sweet as the battlefield of love,
and in both, She is the victor.
She is sweetness and fury, molten flame,
the sharp edge of a killing blade.

She is danger and desire, unquenchable, unstoppable.
She will tease and entice, transforming the soul.
She is pleasure and pain so deeply bound
there is no separation.

I hail Freya, Shining Goddess of the Vanir.
She blinds with Her beauty, seduces with Her fury.
I hail Her in Her fullness, in battle, witchcraft, and love.
I raise this horn in Her honor.
Hail, Freya!
