A prayer to Freyja

So I sat down this afternoon to write something to Freyja for Mayday. Instead, this came out:

Hail to Freyja, glorious goddess, fair one, wise one,
courageous and clever, mighty bearer
of incomparable Brisingamen.
From the lands of the Vanir you came, Freyja,
with knowledge dear and beauty unforeseen.
To the Aesir you brought these precious gifts,
Freyja, but all things of worth have their price,
and all things in the worlds have their time
and their end. Freyja, whose tears of red gold
flow freely, you measure loss by gain
and gain by loss, each taken in turn,
a sorrow but not a regret. Freyja,
who bears the weight of sacrifice; Freyja,
who knows the strength of desire; Freyja,
mistress of might both devious and direct,
I praise you for all you are, I thank you
for gifts granted unasked, for fires that rage
within us, for thirsts unquenched. Hail Freyja

(Hopefully I'll be able to write the one I need later this week. You never know what's going t happen, you know?)
