Out of Valhalla my one eye see
nine worlds spreading before me
I shift to the form of a crow
and fly down Yggdrasil

as I fly I drop a feather or two
and cast upon them my runes
Jera for harvest to bless the crops
wynn for joy to bring laughter

my feathered runes will touch
the hearts of those who believe

Listen to me nine days and nine nights
I hung from my feet from the Tree
and learned beyond godly mystery
in Wisdom’s fountain I gave my eye
I am the teacher for all willing to hear

Out of Valhalla my one eye see
nine worlds spreading before me
even you, yes you I spy
and sometimes it is over you I fly

Wotan am I
Allfather am I
Odin am I
hear my call
I speak your name
