For Saga’s Agon

Saga’s cupboard
by Emily Kelly

Saga keeps a tidy house.
Spare and harmonious is Sunken Benches Hall
Saga has a set of cups
Each as different as her many houseguests.

Snotra enjoys her visits there, sipping from cool Sokkvabekk’s source
She places her drinking glass back carefully with the others.

The fine bone-china teacup is for Hela
She comes bubbling up in the frosty streamers Hvergelmir sends here.

Here is a silver bowl beaten into fine filigree
Mani’s lips have touched the rim many times

Shapely and pale is Urd’s mug of fired clay
Made of the loam by Urdbrunnr

All of gold is Odin’s cup
Unmarked and runeless
Odin’s eye can read this cup’s designs
Mimir’s well fills it continually

Frigga and Saga drink together
Their cup is kept elsewhere

Saga keeps a holy house
Home to every kind of wisdom seeker
Hail, Saga
