Golden Mane

Golden Mane was not born
Child ignorant of our scorn
Strength not gifted free
The ship is to see the sea
The Golden Boar was not delivered
Into the coals the serpents slithered
Forged of fire and true earth
Each painful strike, a new birth
The sun a rampant mane
Tusks of one deemed insane
Fated, one must charge forth
Burning star of the north
Into the forest one shall retreat
Seed of oak, warrior’s meat
Leave me to my silent stampede
This solitude I do need
Indeed, for you, I wish to speak
But how does such one greet?
The magic sounds between each
What worth will we seek?
Do you hear Lightning’s song?
What wish do you long?
Do you hear the Goddess sing?
Have you felt the honeyed sting?
If we knew not, what do the stars show?
If we knew not, what is the sun’s glow?
The scent of flower, what do you feel?
A full moon of autumn, is this life real?
I shall retreat
Into the forest none may greet
There is too much to feel
Too much to steal
I will return glowing bright
The inferno grows with delight
From the forge came forth the Golden Boar
Flaming arrow, to death one soars

Never A Secret, Always A Rhyme

Short and sweet
First to leave and last to greet
The one who speaks of Loki most
Knows but an untouched ghost
Be silent, into the shadow stare
Be patient, a long road prepare
Each thy seed shall grow in time
Never a secret, always a rhyme
Speak not of silent sound
Think not a thought unground
Stormwinds blow sweet thy flute
The unknown mist travels mute

Child of the Vanir

Raven’s crown upon her brow bright
Voice of silver, shining night
Queen of sacred gloried hall
Freya’s boars, a honeyed call
She who rules the mist filled way
Wild hearts never wander astray
Her shadowed hand, matron’s mist
Life and death, her blood kiss
Fierce is Spear Maiden’s hand
Never need her shield stand
Furious to be first to fall
First to rise, her echoed call
Blood anointed by sacred blade
Sacrificed, the grace she gave
None may approach our Lady fair
We are the tusks of Blood Crow’s care
Never need she raise her hand in war
We are Her fury unleashed, thunder’s roar
With one word our blood is cooled
We love the whip, the leash when pulled
Lady of my heart’s blood fire
Rampant boar, self sacrifice my desire

Son of Yggdrasil

My heart shall be light
Honeyed tongue to grant you might
My voice shall summon pleasure
Speaker of Oak, time has no measure
My eye shall be gold
Single pillar never sold
Lightning shall stand you straight
Ever seeking destined date
I am of my sister’s will
Reflected lover, I take my fill
I serve she of golden hair
Piercing the void, is her stare
I am right hand of Raven’s crown
Hung and pierced, I have drowned
Storm wind’s call, a whisper small
Fate, your fate shall never crawl

The Shield

I am foundation and roof
Line first and line last
In service I live
No trespassers may pass
Life fated short
Sundered I shall fall
Bound to oath and honour
I shall never crawl
I am weapon, not armour
Lightning cast forth
Smother foe’s fire
Storm wind of the north
When bound to my brothers
Oak of the field stands
For each one lone standing
A king shouldering the land
I guard not a warrior
Not he who wields might
Our sons, daughters and lovers
Shielded each day, each night
