~ Poetry by me ~
I Follow the High One
I follow the High One, I shall not want.
He walks before me on lonely paths
and on the way into battle.
And though I walk in the shadow of death,
I fear not, for you are with me.
Your spear and your wisdom
provide me with power.
You grant me success in the face of my foes,
my horn is brimming with mead.
You give me courage to fight my fate,
to bear it bravely and overcome it.
You walk before me through death of the self,
and lead me on to your radiant hall.
The High One´s friendship shall be my strength
forever as long as I live.
