			Runelore
	
	In eldest times runes were cast,
	blessed elements displayed their raths:
	ice, air, fire, and water; Erce's center 
	holding all in trust, bonds to wheel;
	matching spokes all moving, 
	rounded, sealed; proving ways 
	of gods and warriors; Rinda's rune 
	Isa, ice bound goddess of the Northern Faeries:
	Odin's hag, ice queen of earth: her curse
	found her birthing avenging blood for Odin:
	her cold eye casting doubt upon this earth,
	protecting all the quick and dead;
	Isa, Gebo, Dagaz and Inguz: all runes
	Of elemental power: each singing
	songs of tribal lore: black as midnight
	Isa stands at the gates of icy North;
	Dawn's red light in Gebo rises with the sun;
	elder Daguz blinds us in midday light
	of southern skies; while twilight misty gray
	mingles blood of Inguz with night and day:
	western seas his realms delight to know;
	Kaeri holds the key to Gebo:
	Her element is air, the sudden squall
	Her method of invocation causing
	all the gods bestirred by the winds of war;
	Loki is the power of fire: trickster god
	Who lays the ways of Daguz;
	Inguz holds us in the power of Hler:
	this sea god's empathy is clear:
	his secret teachings tell us all;
	Erce holds dark council in this realm:
	Her faerie children cast the runes,
	and all the elements return
	to us with divinations of love and war
	passed all doom to know: their power
	of earthen forces known in thought
	by wizened wizard's witches blood
	reading fiery letters of moon runes!
