Prayer to Saga from a writer

Hail Saga,
Mistress of Words,
who lingers over tales that reverberate
off Skvabekk’s walls like
the sound of falling
water.
Lady of Lore,
equal in words to Odin All-Father,
I ask that You bless
my ink and tongue
so that my own words
are ever pleasing to You.
May my pen
never falter
in its quest.
Hail Saga,
to You, I pray.

 

Thanksgiving to Saga

In adoration I come to You
Lady of Lore and Histories.
You who hordes the words of ages,
texts known and secret,
some written only
in the hearts of man and roots of Yggdrasil.
Thank You for all that You are
and all that You do.
May I ever honor You
in my written and spoken
workings as I sift
through tale and lore and
dusty genealogies.
Praise be to Saga
of Sunken-bench and
heavy tome, of
sweet meed and cool stream.
Hail Saga, be praised!

(both prayers by D.)
