Reclaiming the Craft of Poetry

Baldur's Death, A Play in Verse

Author: Jeva Singh-Anand


Category: liturgy/poetry   Level: All

Growing up in Germany, I cherished my grandmother's treasure house of stories: Siegfried and the Dragon, Grimm's Fairy Tales, and many others. Reclaiming my cultural heritage and my craft as a poet, I have now published his One-Act Play Baldur's Death (A Play in Verse) . Available as a digital download, Baldur's Death is available at

But this does not suit the jealous Trickster God Loki, who, following Odin's command to the letter but defying its spirit, manipulates the lowly mistletoe to slay Baldur.

The play was originally written as a piece of liturgy for Siouxland First Wiccan Congregation.

Singh-Anand draws inspiration from ancient mythology and from the major poets of the Nineteenth Century: chief among them are Goethe, Schiller, Hoelderlin, Coleridge, Longfellow, and Macauley.
