Matters and Mysteries…

*

The Aesir and Vanir made a truce…

*

To put a seal on their friendship,

every God and Goddess

spat into a great vat.

*

The Aesir carried off the vat

and formed a man from the spittle.

*

He was named Kvasir.

*

So steeped in the matters and mysteries

of the Nine Worlds was he that no-one

ever regretted putting to him a question…

*

Sitting back with his eyes closed

Kvasir gave every problem its due

with a serene, open face and

set it within its wider space…

*

He made each questioner feel

that they had been helped

to answer their own question.

*

Wherever Kvasir went

word of his coming went before him.
