Hail Spring

Freyja, grant life to the frost-covered land,
once more in the air, the bleating of lamb,
weigh heavy the branches dripping with buds
and the warmth of the Spring sings in our blood...

Bright is the grass, vibrant and new
alive and bedecked in the life-giving dew,
quickened, the song of the lark and the wren
and Winter slinks off from the realm of all men...

Blossom the fruit tree,
warm the cold stream,
awaken cold world
from this long frozen dream,
Ostara, she stretches, smiles and yawns
and small rabbits run in the rosy red dawn...

Gone now the dark nights,
the fire banked high,
gone now all frost giants
and tear-frozen eye,
Skadhi and Ullr,
both put up their skis
and life comes to us
on the warm spring-time breeze...

Hail the guardians of Midgard and men,
Hail the coming of Spring yet again,
Hail to Sol, as we raise the horn
and toast the new season once more reborn...
