Temple of Valhalla’s Ships

Let Odin walk beside me on every road I go. For one eye can guide more than two.

Let Thor protect me from the storms you need help with, to weather the worst.      

Let Tyr give me courage when I have to fight and a shield when I need to defend.

Let Freyja guard and safely keep my soul while I heal from burnt wingtips.


Let Freyr grant me pleasure in my loving and my loving of others

Let Bragi give me eloquence in the words I say and share the spark amongst others.

Let Aedgir keep the oceans calm when I sail uncharted waters 

Let Skadi guide me to see my compass through life when I need direction.


Let Vor reveal everything of worth so I have the knowledge to choose worth over face.

Let Idun remind me to bathe and hydrate, to give me the tools to be strong.

Let Heimdall watch, For every step I take is my own and together with those around me

Let Frigga weave a spell keeping me from harm and learn to live without it.


And finally:
Never let Loki know my name.


(Based and inspired on a poem by John Anthony Fingleton)
