Urd (Sig:Ar:Tyr)

Drink from Urd, and sing its song Its mead of knowledge sweet and strong The mists of time and port of call The beginning and the end of all Star borne lay with wives of men Their daughters great with etin kin Ancients seed the darken kind To hang in silence nights all nine The elder blood in fiery vein Unleash the brood of Odin's fane To trample southern kind asunder And bring the light of distant thunder Erect halls beyond the sea To honour blood of Heimdall's three Till the land of golden yield To forge the steel and oaken shield Drink and laugh o sons of high Lay with maidens 'neath the sky Forge the race of Northern kind The fates of gods and men entwined Great kingdoms rose in golden times And mighty winds of northern skies The winter frost of yearly time Yield summer rain and warmth sublime The god's gift came in flash of fire A map of heaven to Asgard's spire Black iron forged in Volund's name Ancestral bond of blood and flame And all shall point to northern star Where lodestone guides from lands afar Primordial home of gods and men To never leave from mortal ken When sudden earth and mountain split And walls of ice from north emit And nations fall and seas arise A reign of fire from darkened skies Boreal children scatter far The high ones weep between the stars For all they wrought, and all they forged Fell deep within dark earthen gorge To eternal lay in ice and snow Held whispered runes in heathen glow For those of kind, to find the same The one-eye's secret throne to reign And now lost children flee their bane To time of old, the stone of flame To fill the veins with ancient fire Reshape the world on martyr's pyre
