I hail Gerda, shining bride of Frey.
I honor Her for Her self-possession,
Her independence, Her ferocity of spirit.
She is primal power,
like a river rushing beneath the ice.
She is raw force,
incantations whispered in the darkness,
the embodiment of Ginungagap’s synergy.
She is silent contemplation,
the holder of all things secret.
She is the loss that is not seen,
the holder of life that is not born.
I hail Gerda, for all that She has taught me.
I hail Her for being the shadow
that illuminates and nourishes Frey.
