To Frey

Hail to Frey, shining son of noble Njord,
brother of incomparable Freyja,
rider of gold-bristled Gullinbursti,
pilot of swift-skimming Skidbladnir,
master of Alfheim, wielder of the antler!
Brave Frey, devoted husband of fair Gerd,
in a distant land you saw the white-armed maid
and were stricken--any price would you pay,
any sacrifice would you freely make,
to gain the heart of the giant's daughter.
Single-minded pursuer of true love,
we see you in the seasons' changing,
in all the rhythms of our bodies;
we feel you in the trickle of desire
along the spine, deep in the belly.
Driven by need, we know your might,
we know the keen-edged claim of passion,
a claim fierce and full, as dear as breath:
the call of lust is the call of life.
Forceful one, irresistible one,
your persuasion is of the earth--
we feel it in our frailty, our flesh,
our bones, our rushing blood. We know it
as we know we live. Frey, sower of seeds,
granter of gifts simple and sublime,
of the world and of the spirit, we honor you.
Hail to Frey! Hail the bringer of joy,
of renewal, of completion! Hail Frey!
