I hail Saga, Mistress of Sokkvabek,
Historian, Scop, Keeper of memory,
of stories, preserver of truths,
Patroness of poets, sharp-tongued skald.
praise you with horn of mead, with pen to page,
with mindful thoughts of
connections and consequence
and blood-red threads.
I will think upon You when I
hail my dead,
when I raise them to life with tales of their deeds.
I will hold You
in my heart when I craft by action
the story of my own life.
I will ask that You
remember, when no others do,
those moments of quiet epiphanies which ask
those moments of awareness so often unremarked by Your younger
Let not my words pass into the void,
You whose wordsare cunning and wise.
Give them power, that they may adhere
to the fabricof my wyrd as ink to the
Let them stand with the weight of stone.
I hail Saga, Companion of
I hail Saga, ever-wise.
