Gold of the Gods

This we should seek This we should save
That which is called gold of the gods
Not iron or ice Not soil or steel
But that which our forbears found

This we should have This we should hold
That which is not fire of the flood
But gold it gives To man and maid
With warmth of the waster of wood

If of these words You do not ween
Then reach for the souls of the skies
For Vanir will teach And Aesir will tell
Wisdom is called the gold of the gods
That we should get That we should give
The wisdom our forbears found

1991 Swain Wodening Canote
