Odin's Rune Invocation
I Know Myself Hanging On The Wind Cold Tree
For Nine Icy Nights,
Wounded By The Spear, Consecrated To Odin.
I Consecrated To Myself.
I Was Hanging On The Mighty Tree
Which Conceals Man
Where Man Grew Out Of It's Roots.
They Offered Me Neither Bread Nor Wine;
So I Bent Down In Search.
I Recognized The Runes; Wailing I Grasped Them
Until I Sank Down From The Tree.
Now I Began To Increase, To Be Wise,
To Grow And To feel Well,
From The Word, Word Grew After Word
And Deed Shaped To Deeds With Deeds.
Now I Know The Songs Like No Wise One Knows
And None Of The Children Of Men,
And Should These Songs, Oh Human Child,
Be Un-learnable To You For Sheer Endless Times;
Grasp Them As You Get Hold Of Them.
Use Them As You Hear Of Them.
Hail You If You Retain Them!
