Final Rights for the Beloved

For they are good, their heart is true and beat ever bravely

Bragi, into your hall do welcome

With words of lifeblood, and hands of love
That wroughts emotionally

To both victim and instigator

For their pleasure, not with limit

A garden-tender, virile-mender
Encompassing boar and bull

This spirit, ever-vigilant
Alert all-times for danger
To guard ally and descendant

Wide-eyed and innocent
Never showing length of tooth

Loki, into your hall do welcome
This cheeky norm-shirker
Fire-blooded, lightning-tongued

Braving storms in ship and heart
Ever-pursuant of any goal

Odin, into your hall do welcome

Concerned for the future of all things
Finding knowledge in our history

Sigyn, into your hall do welcome
This staunch and loyal soul
That bears the weight of realms
With no complaint nor moral fall

Skadhi, into your hall do welcome
This sadist soul of vengeance
Hunter of beasts, man or meat
Demands retributed justice

Thor, into your hall do welcome
This spirit, chivalrous and strong
A protector of the innocent
And sworn enemy of all wrong

Tyr, into your hall do welcome
This martial soul of honour
Bound by word and oath
Does seek no trick nor cover

Ullr, into your hall do welcome
This stoic soul of sport
Joyous in game or vital bout
Victorious on street and court

Vali, into your hall do welcome
This soul taken premature
No chance to show their nature
Kept eternal, and ever pure

Seel my gods, now ye have heard; so see this soul to safety
For they are good, their heart is true and beats forever bravely

This poetic prayer was inspired by the last ask I received.

An ‘exercise’ I did during February, basically trying to draw one portrait of the norse gods per day ouo/ Some are bleh, some are less bleh, but it was fun nonetheless~

This part has some group portraits in them, because, well, I was losing inspiration for individual gods, and there are a few that are always in a group of two or three :’D

Europa
Forseti

“Europa” von Forseti (Dunkel die Wälder, 2007)

“Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa

Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa

Wir können nur wandern und bluten dabei 
Im Schlachthof Europa 
Nur sterben macht frei

Ein Heil dir Europa, ein Heil in den Tod 
Wirst niemals erwachen 
Wirst bringen nur Not 

Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa
stirbt…

Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa
Europa, Europa
stirbt…”

Nanna

In Norse mythology, Nanna Nepsdóttir or simply Nanna is a Goddess associated with the god Baldr. In the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson, Nanna is the wife of Baldr and the couple produced a son, the god Forseti. After Baldr’s death, Nanna dies of grief. Nanna is placed on Baldr’s ship with his corpse and the two are set aflame and pushed out to sea. In Hel, Baldr and Nanna are united again.
