Hail to Holy Heimdall!  Guardian God of All Kin,
Warder of Bifrost Bridge--Bond-Path Betwixt Gods and Men.
The Sire of Sacred Symbols and Rune-Master of Might,
Ay and Anon Galdor-God--Thine Own Shall Seek Rig's Light.
Maker of Mankind--Kon's Kindred of Warriors and Kings,
Ever shall Har's Voice be Heard--Resounding as it Rings!
 
Hail to Heidh! Seeress with Sight of Wise Olden Ways,
Abiding by Well and Tree--She Wards Past/Present Days.

Kvasir-Bond Held Strong--Shall Never Sunder Nor Sever,
All Wicked/Wise Shall Welcome Heidh--Anon and Ever!
 
Hail to Loki!  King of Chaos with a Fool's Effect,
Sex and Shape Ve-Shifter--He Rightly Deserves Respect,
Satire is Loki's Shield and Wile Ways His Cunning Cloak,
All to Guard His Glory--Buried Beaneath Jest and Joke.
Laughter is His Lantern--As Revelry is His Rod,
All Seek to Secret Him--The Glorious Golden-God!
 
Hail to Gullveig! Sensual Seith-Maid Greedy for Gold,
The Sovereign Seeker--Thus the Beautiful and Bold.
Thrice Burnt and Borne Forth from the <Ken-Flames of Howling Birth,

Anon Loki's Magical Mate--Ay He Holds Her Heart,
Their Moon-Mad Way Bore Ur-Wolves--The Two Shall Never Part!
 
Mystic Minds, Bodily Blessings, Ur-Sense and Sight,
Heimdall, Heidh, Loki, Gullveig--Praise We Fain Will Plight!
Mentors Who Mold Us To Be Unfettered and Free,
Within Urth's Sacred Well--Within Har's Holy Tree!
The Four from Life to Life--Our Center, Core and Key,
Mentors of Mind/Body--Shall Bide and Ever Be!
