Etheral Edition: To What He Is, Not What He Is Not

loki2He who bares insults forged of lies, yet only wields sharp truth in return
He whose lips are sealed, yet whose words are plentiful.
He who hath planted seeds, yet also bore a woman’s burden.
The patron of god-treasures, and the doom-weaver of God foes.

Oath-brother of the Allfather, and kin to all of Asgard’s hosts.
Watcher of the back of Thunder, and stabber of backs of Ice
Spare eyes for the One-Eyed, and Jester for the wise.

This is the Son of Lightning and Needle
This is the Trickster, husband of Strength Unending and Father of Legends
This is Loki, and now you know why I pray to Him.

    This is a lovely devotional – thank you! (I was drawn here by your article on the NNV, and am working back through the archives, delighted to find other folk who wok with Loki.)
