Upon his shoulders perch two ravens, huginn and muninn.
They circle the earth by day seeing all
At night they report to him the world's tidings.
He wears a golden helmet
and a golden ring,
at his side sit two wolves.
a magic sword
And a spear called Gungnir,
they are carved with runes.
His eight legged horse Sleipnir
Carries him over land, sea and air,
the bringer of the valiant dead,
from the battlefield
across the rainbow bridge to Valhalla.
For a single drink of the enchanted water
he paid with one eye,
he was granted supreme wisdom.
He is the god of poetry, sorcery, and death.
Wounded, pierced by a spear
he hung upside down for nine days.
Fasting and agony
he made of himself
A sacrifice to himself.
Given no bread nor mead
he looked down,
and with a loud cry
fell screaming from the world tree.
In a flash of insight
the secret magic of the runes
was revealed to him.
He took up the runes
and mastered them,
eighteen powerful charms
success in battle,
and the power to bring back the dead.
His sacred blood mixed with black wind
and rain wept down from the world tree
Deep into the earth.
He commanded the earth
to crack open
and to spew forth the strongest of the strong!Tomado de AlbumCancionYLetra.com
On this day he did bestow unto the world
the sons of Odin!
