Ice and Fire

by Odin Owlfather

Age Group: Adult



Ice is still

and Silence is Wisdom

good if you hear

best if you listen

Heed my counsel stray singer

Now is answered what you ask of the runes

Graven by the gods

Made by the All Father

Sent by the powerful sage

lt is best for man to remain silent

Fire is Needed

for cold is winter

and Nauthiz is Needful

in turning there is friction

for light and warmth

For these things give thanks at nightfall

The day to come, a lighted torch

A sword tested, the troth of a maid

Ice crossed safely, warm ale drunk

Hew wood in wind-time

in fine weather sail

Tell in the night-time tales to house-girls

For too many eyes are open by day

From a ship expect speed, from a shield, cover

Keenness from a sword, but a kiss from a girl

Drink ale by the hearth, over ice glide

Buy a stained sword, buy a starving mare

To fatten at home: and fatten the watch-dog

Trust not an acre early sown

Nor praise a son too soon

Weather rules the acre, wit the son

Both are exposed to peril.
