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.
