FROM THE HEIGHTS: A POEM TO WOTAN

One of our brothers, whom we simply call "Deep Thinker," wrote this and recited it when we did blot to Wotan atop Sierra Buttes.

FROM THE HEIGHTS: A POEM TO WOTAN
Up you men and grab your arms, a new day has come
Sowilo light of inspiration, and Ond's breath stir the warrior spirit.
The battle looms near, ascend we must, there is an obstacle that Wyrd has placed in our path.
Labored of breath and blood pumping by hearts true, we push on against gravity
Nauthiz manifest to test our will and strength of purpose
Until our dream is manifest into the physical world we strive always upward.
At last we stand on the precipice between Earth and Sky -
Oh, that we could soar filled with Odrerir!
Our vision carries us over this horizon and the next -
Jorth's grandeur laid bare before our gaze - Ears strain to hear the Valkerie's song
Eyes peering into the great beyond.
Can we see Valhalla from here? Will our deeds this day be known?
Hail the Gods!
Hail the Ancestors!
Hail our Holy Folk!
