To Nanna and to Jord

Nanna
Hail to Nanna, strong-hearted bride of bright Balder,
most loving of wives, most faithful of consorts,
most steadfast and devoted of lovers. Nanna,
courageous one, daring one whose perilous journey
would strike terror into other hearts; Nanna,
compassionate one, gracious one whose presence
brings comfort to all, whose gentle, certain hand
builds order from chaos; Nanna, resolute one,
balanced one whose steady heart creates a home
in any place you go, no matter how foreign,
no matter how desolate, no matter how alone.
Nanna, strong one, quiet one, whose gift of belonging
can soothe and enliven, cheer and console. Nanna,
who lightens heavy hearts, who brings together
those who have parted, we honor you. Hail Nanna!


Jord
Hail to Jord, mother of Thor who gave to her son
her strength and her solidity. Goddess of dirt
and sturdy stone, of moss and roots and buried bones,
of seed and stem, of cave and plain, of every patch
on which we step, on which we live our lives. Upon
your flesh we stand. We laugh and weep, couple and contend,
suffer the bitter and savor the sweet,
birth our babies, teach our children, bury our dead.
All our joys and sorrows, all that we love and fear,
all that we ever know, all comes from you.
Mighty Jord, encompassing goddess, we honor you.
