Asgard’s Wall…

Image result for solomon's seal symbol

During the conflict between Aesir and Vanir,

Asgard’s wall was reduced to rubble.

*

The Gods were keen to see it rebuilt,

but none could be found

to undertake such a toilsome task.

*

One day, a lone figure on horseback

galloped over the shimmering bridge, Bifrost,

which separated the worlds of Gods and Men…

*

Heimdall stood in his way.

“I have a proposition for the Gods,”

said the man, reining in his horse…

*

So, the Gods and Goddesses gathered in Gladsheim,

and Odin eyed the horseman, tetchily,

“Your proposition?”

*

“I will rebuild the Wall of Asgard.”

*

The Gods and Goddesses stirred, wondering

what sort of man could accomplish such a thing.

*

“I will build the wall around Asgard so strong and high,

that should the Frost Giants and Rock Giants,

together, rail against it they would still be repelled.”

*

“How long will you need to do this?”

asked Odin, his single eye, glinting.

*

“Eighteen months from start to finish. No less,”

said the would be wall builder.

“And your wages for such a feat?” asked Odin.

*

“The Goddess Freyja to wife, the Sun her handmaid.”

*

The Gods and Goddesses of Gladsheim erupted in furore!
