In Memoriam

Lead them to the light, Michael of the flaming sword,
Those warriors who have fallen in honor's shadow.

Hold them fast in the warmth of your presence
After their sacrifice to defend the creeds and crowns
To which they swear their oaths.

Take them to a place of peace, of rest, of safety,
After they have bravely fought to secure those ideals for us.

Lead them to the light, Michael of the flaming sword,
To those warriors who have fallen in honor's shadow.

Brisingamen - Song for Freya

Freya by Carina Jorgensen

Brisingamen - Song for Freya

Ages hence the scribes will say
That my necklace is a symbol of my shame,
And my coitus with the Stunted Ones
Evidence of a feminine weakness
For things bright and beautiful.

How wrong they will be,
Those judgmental mortals;
For I was destined to wear the 
Fire of the Blood in the Ruby,
The Light of the Sun in the Amber,
The Strength of the Warrior in the Gold.
Only on my breast could these jewels repose.
Earthly favors were mine to give, after all.
Nothing more than an afterthought
To claim what was ordained to be mine.

So sing of my beauty,
My falcon-feathered mantle,
My fierceness in the fray of battle;
Sing of how I taught the Voice of Magic
To Enchantresses in the snow.
But sing not of my shame,
For shame is for mankind's race,
And I Am of the Gods.

Summer's End, New Beginnings

Hello everyone!

My last posting was on Midsummer, and I've been (happily) incredibly busy over the past couple of months; so much so that I had a period of non-posting!  Thanks to all of you who remained with me during this small hiatus.

Now that Summer is drawing to a close, I hope to be here much more frequently and look forward to all of your postings, and hope to be contributing to the blogosphere as well.

I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful summer (weather was an eventful few months, yes?) and are looking forward to the cooler, darker (in the best way) period that is coming.
