Asatru Poem A Carving

Asatru Poem A Carving Cover A Runestone did, stand in the Hof
Deep the carvings, upon its face
A worthy spot, where all could see
Its message old, its meaning plain

Know how to read, Know how to write
Wise words hard gained, from Elder Kin
They prod us to, much Knowledge learn
And use our minds, in worthy ways

Know how to carve, know how to stain
In stone and wood, in steel and bone
The Holy Runes, from Odin's grasp
Holding power, in form and stroke

Know how to ask, know how to Blot
To worship give, and blessing get
A rightful plea, and grateful thanks
Confirm respect, for Old Ones High

In all of these, and more besides
The Staves hold keys, to Lore and thought
A healing charm, a warding mark
A craftsman's glyph, a grave mound's stone

The magic though, contained within
These simple lines, upright and slash
Lies in the Wyrd, of Tribe's Orlay
And Runestone's words, reminders are
