I Have Begin Studying The Art/Craft Of Runes…


blue_rune_by_Sabakku_no_GaaraI Hung From A Windswept Tree.

I Hung There For Nine Days And Nights,

Gashed With A Spear,

An Offering To Odin,

A Sacrifice To Myself,

Bonded To The Tree Which No Man Knows,

Or Whither Its Roots May Run.

No One Gave Me Drink.

I Peered Down Into The Depths And

Snatched Up The Runes,

And With Fearful Scream

Fell Into A Swoon.

After I Began To Thrive,

My Wisdom Thrived Too.

I Was Joyful And I Prospered.

One Word Led Me To Another,

One Deed Led Me To Another.

“The Speech Of The High One” The Poetic Edda, c. 1200 AD

    This appeals to my inner Amon Amarth fan. 🙂
