To Njord

Hail to Njord, elder Van, father of golden Freyja
and brave Frey, husband of mountain-loving Skadhi.
Shore-dwelling god, lord of high-walled Noatun,
the crash of waves on smooth-worn rock, the white sea-foam,
the ocean depths as black as any moonless night,
the shrill cries of greedy gulls--all are dear to you.
Fair weather and safe harbor your gifts to seamen,
gold to provide home and hearth your gifts to all men.
Wise one, kind one, giver of blessings small and great,
of wealth with which to live well from the earth's bounty,
of land on which to keep our families safe and whole,
of trust and faith that our needs will be met: Hail Njord!


Actually, I started this one a few days ago, but Tyr's and Skadhi's prayers finished first.

Thank you :). I think I may be done with what I need for Midsummer, since I have nine now and that's a good number, but I'm not sure.
