~ Poetry by me ~


The Gods are my Guides

The Gods are my guides; I shall not want.
Their counsel and friendship quicken my soul.
Right roads I walk for the sake of their names.
And though I should walk in the valley of darkness,
I shall not fear, for they are with me,
their help is my staff, their presence comforts me.

They prepare my table in the face of my foes
and fill my cup to the brim;
Their blessings and company I will enjoy
all days of my life and beyond.
The Aesir and Vanir will be my Gods
forever as long as I live.
