Edgeonga is a reconstruction of Idunna's name into
Edgeonga, holder of the apples of youth, is a goddess of innocence and undying
She is known for her beauty and kindness.
For Hluðwiga, devoted follower of Idunna.
This prayer in Anglo-Saxon
Idunna apple goddess giver of youth to the gods,
red and gold fruit apples of everlasting youth,
Shining fruit half as beautiful as you,
Grows in your orchard given to gods and heroes,
so they never grow old so gray they never go.
Away to Thrymheim Thurses did carry,
When Loki with a trick lured you to the woods,
The Gods interrogated tortured Loki,
So with Freya's falcon coat Loki flew to Thursland,
Into a nut he made you So was your lot,
When to Asgard he flew Aesir goddess in hand,
Home to Asgard where apples grow.
Orchard goddess giver of good health,
I wassail your trees I wassail your troth,
I wassail apples fruit of everlasting youth!
