Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

At the crossroads she divines the secret life of our times...

	White Lady

	Born out of time, in a world bereft of true magic 
	she walks among us like an ancient goddess: 
	her enchantments speak clearly from her violet eyes, 
	as she speaks softly her, melodious white charms. 
	The crescent moon in a blue mist ascends 
	the northern sky, feathers dangle
	down from her ashen staff, reminding us 
	of her true ancestry: Volva, they called her: 
	priestess and prophetess, one; she knows 
	the seething arts, the trances that give birth
	to the old ways of our tribe, the Seeress Who Knows All;
	she knows the legends of the She-wolfs clan, of Odin's kin,
	of the dark ends of Time, when Ragnarok shall find Surt's fiery flood;
	Fenrir, Odin's bane, shall be set loose, and Jormungand's venom
	shall blast the earth with poisonous spew; then,
	the nine worlds will begin to dissolve with all the old gods, 
	and dark men below Midgard's bright halls of gold, 
	where all shall see the sun turn black, the moon to blood, 
	beneath the fiery sea; then shall rise the younger gods of the Aesir: 
	Vidar and Vali; Modi and Magni, fair Baldur and Hod; 
	Honir will be there, too; in the land of Idavoll 
	they shall live, both good and ill, there to gaze
	in wonder on the elder gods treasures: Aesir's Trove;
	and, most of all, below the World Tree, Yggdrasill, Lif and Lifthrasir
	shall arise and give birth to a new race of humankind: 
	so the end and beginning come full circle in a blasted fen,
	and the ancient Wheel of Life renewed, begin again.
