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.
