To Frigga

Hail to Frigga, wise and knowing wife of Odin,
sorrowful mother of bright Baldr whose end
all your loving work and wisdom could not forestall.
Keeper and guardian of home and family,
we pray to you when we wed, when we birth our babies;
we call on you to bless our households, our children.
Maker of order, with a clean house and a warm meal,
with a full horn offered to each welcomed guest,
we honor you. Frigga, who knows and understands
all but keeps silent, who holds the keys of Asgard,
who is a constant friend of women, of mothers,
for refuge and support we call to you. Hail Frigga!



And I will tell you that I could feel the waves of irony washing over me while I wrote that 7th line--the bit about the clean house?--while sitting at my desk, with its stick-it-in-a-pile method of organization... :)
