Submission to the Nerthus Agon
by C. Keller
Lady of the Veil,
She Who is too holy to look upon,
Terrifying in Her majesty.
You for Whom violence is abhorrent,
And for Whom peace is the price of Your visit,
I await the coming of Your chariot.
Let us rejoice in Your holy presence,
Your gifts of plenty to be celebrated,
Your tenderness of Your children a blessing.
No more the sounds of battle,
But only the soft splash of the willing supplicant,
Last breaths given gladly in Your honour.
Only death begets life spent with You,
My life force the named offering,
To behold Your wondrous face.
