Goddess Brigid

Goddess Brigid Cover
A Message for Imbolc

by Rel Davis, Minister, Unitarian Fellowship of South Florida

In Mexico, there are two "patron saints." The first, and foremost, with a holiday on December 12, is Guadalupe, called variously St. Guadalupe and Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Church now says this is the Virgin Mary who made an appearance before a young man named Juan Diego in December 1531. She looked like an Indian maiden and she appeared on Tepeyac Hill near Mexico City.

Although she is assumed to be the Virgin Mary, she is nonetheless called the
"patron saint" of Mexico. She is most likely nothing but the ancient Aztec goddess Coatlique, whose holy day also happened to have been December 12.

The other saint you hear about a lot in Mexico is the mysterious "San Juan de los Lagos," Saint John of the Lakes. There never has been such a person, of course. It was obviously an ancient lake god, presumably the patron saint of Mexico City, which was built on top of Lake Texcoco. He could have been Tpoztecatl, ancient god of agriculture, or even Huitzilopchtli, sun god of the Aztecs.

All over the world, in Roman Catholic countries, you will find "patron saints"
who never existed. They are the early pagan gods and goddesses converted to Christianity for public relations purposes.

The earliest recorded "conversion" of a pagan goddess was Saint Sophia in Asia Minor. Very early, Christians had a hard time converting the populace of Greece and the Hellenic cultures of the region because the people were quite happy with their goddess, Minerva, also known as Pallas Athena, the patron deity of the city of Athens.

The word "pallas" is the ancient Greek term for a maiden. Athena is thought (by Robert Graves and others) to be a version of Anatha, the Sumerian Queen of Heaven. With the title of Pallas, she would have been the ancient Goddess in her maiden aspect.

Minerva was universally called Sophia -- wisdom. So a "Saint Sophia" was invented, and churches all over Asia Minor were built in her honor. She was even said to have had three daughters -- St. Faith, St. Hope and St. Charity!

The entire region converted to Christianity as soon as the church declared the region's favorite goddess to be a Christian saint.

So it really wasn't the inherent stupidity of the Irish, as some scholars allege, that allowed them to be converted in a similar way.

They reacted like people all over the world did. Make my god a Christian saint and I'll become a Christian.

Interestingly, the Irish goddess converted to Christianity was the same as Pallas Athena, it was the maiden aspect of the Goddess. Where in continental Europe, the Mother aspect was chosen -- witness all the cathedrals built to the Virgin Mary, Mother of God -- in Ireland, as in Asia Minor, it was the maiden goddess honored.

The Irish goddess was called Brigid (pronounced "breed") or Brigit. She was a triple goddess (some said all three were named Brigid!) and she was the goddess of wisdom (like her Asia Minor counterpart). Her sisters were the goddesses of healing and smithcraft respectively.

At Kildare there was a temple to Brigid, with a perpetual fire kept by 19 priestesses. The number 19 was used because there are 19 years in the Celtic
"great year," when the solar and lunar calendars coincide. Brigid was always called "The Three Blessed Ladies of Britain" or "The Three Mothers" and she was identified with the moon and the three phases of the moon. (As such, she is also identical to the ancient earth goddess, Hecate.) It was common for the ancients to accept their goddess as being three people. This is where the Christians got their concept of the trinity.

Actually, Brigid can be traced back to Illyricum, the ancient land now occupied by Croatia (and extending over Serbia, Bulgaria, and Austria). Her shrine was in the city of Brigeto and she was called Brigantes, accepted by the Romans as identical to Juno Regina, Queen of Heaven. Her followers were often called Brigands, or outlaws, and Robin Hood was most likely the title of a leader of
"brigands" fighting against the Christian conquerors.

The Gaelic Celts brought Brigid with them when they left their original home in Galatia -- in Asia Minor, no less, and moved across Europe to settle in what is now Ireland.

In Ireland, the Church could not talk the people into giving up the worship of Brigid, so they "converted" her to St. Bridget, claiming she was a nun who founded a convent in Kildare (where the goddess' temple already was located.)
The stories about "St. Bridget" were the same stories told about the goddess: that everywhere she walked, flowers and shamrocks sprang up (the three-leafed shamrock, of course, was the symbol of the triple Brigid), that in her shrine it was always springtime and that in her convent the cows never went dry -- all fertility stories.

The Irish priests said, however, that Brigid wasn't really a saint at all: she was the Queen of Heaven, the mother of Jesus herself. The Church ruled that since Bridget couldn't be the mother of Jesus (Mary already had that job all sewed up), she could be the step-mother of Jesus -- which meant, of course, that Jesus had to have been raised in Ireland, a story frequently told in the old days.

The goddess Brigid had a consort named Dagda, meaning "father." The Latin word for father was Patricius, so the Church made him a saint as well, "St. Patrick."
The myths say Patrick was the person who Christianized Ireland in the year 461, but we know Ireland actually was converted in the seventh century by Augustine of Canterbury, who was responsible for getting Patrick canonized.

Patrick, the sun-god, has his day on March 17, the beginning of spring in Ireland.

Interestingly, the churches in Ireland dedicated to "St. Bridget" were also dedicated to the O'Kelly clans. All the baptismal fees in those churches belonged to the O'Kellies. If you know any Irishman named Kelly you can tell him or her something about the history of their name. The word means they are descended from the kelles, or sacred harlots (to use the Church name) of the goddess Brigid.

The goddess' priestesses were not allowed to marry, so they were free to choose any man they wished. Children born to such unions were called O'Kelly, because they were born of a kelle.

Every woman today who gets married is given the goddess name, of course, for the word "bride" is simply an alternate spelling of Brigid.

The feast day of Brigid is February 1, which was also considered the first day of spring to pagans. It is the day of quickening, when vegetation comes alive (quickens) in the bowels of the earth. For this reason, it is often called Imbolc, a Celtic word meaning "in the belly." It's also called Oimelc ("ewe's milk") for this was also the lambing season in ancient Ireland.

In ancient Rome, the first two weeks of February were called the Lupercalia, in honor of Lupercus (or Faunus), god of agriculture, and Venus, goddess of fertility. It was also a festival of quickening, and also honored the goddess as maiden. It involved parades and the lighting of fires.

Lupercalia ended, of course, on February 14, a day we now call St. Valentine's Day, after yet another spurious "saint." The name was most likely originally
"Gallantine's Day," the day of the lover. On this day, a couple could agree to a trial marriage, living together until the next Lammas, August 1. "Will you be my Valentine?" was the way a woman would propose such an engagement to a man.
(The Valentine "heart," of course, was not the physical heart we are acquainted with, but another part of the anatomy entirely.)

Fires have always been important on Imbolc. The fires symbolized the new-born sun, born at Yule and the sparks of new life in springtime. One ancient custom was the lighting of candles in every window of the house, to let the world know of coming spring. The sight of every home blazing with candles must have been comforting to people still feeling the bitter cold of February up north!

The Church made this time the Feast of the Purification of the Virgin ("virgin"
was just another word for "maid," of course) and they called in Candlemas, the feast of candles. Since people were already lighting candles at home anyway, the Church declared this a time to go to church and get your candles blessed.

During the Burning Times, the great Inquisition of Europe, it was said that witches considered Candlemas their most sacred festival. This was probably the Church's way of warning people not to take Brigid too seriously.

One of the most important customs at Candlemas in ancient times was the forecasting of weather. In the old English poem: "If Candlemas Day be bright and clear, there'll be two winters in the year." It was once thought that the quarters (the equinoxes and solstices) foretold the weather directly (i.e. a warm Christmas meant a warm winter) while the cross-quarters (Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas and Samhain) foretold the weather negatively.

We keep this custom by calling February 2 "Groundhog's Day" and predicting the rest of the winter by whether or not the groundhog sees its shadow or not. If it sees its shadow then Candlemas Day will be "bright and clear."

There were a number of customs associated with this day. One was the baking of
"Bridget's bread" on this day. This goes back thousands of years to the baking of cakes for the Queen of Heaven spoken of in the Bible. The last of the precious grain stored over the winter would be prepared into cakes on this day, in the prospect of much more grain in the year ahead.

Another custom called for the making of "Bridget's crosses" out of straw. The cross was the ancient symbol for the sun (the rays of the sun seem to come out in cruciform shape) and the straw crosses were in honor of the reborn sun. The crosses would be placed around the home for protection during the following year.

One young woman each year would also be chosen to represent the goddess, the
"Bride." She would wear a crown of candles on her head that day, again in honor of the sun.

The meaning of this holiday for us is simply this: this is the time of quickening, the time of new life. It's a time to be thankful for all the new life that arises in spring, a time to plan ahead for the new year and a time to begin the long processes of making a living, bringing in a new crop or getting on with our lives.

New projects are well begun on Brigid's Day. This is a time of hope, a time for looking positively at one's world.

This week, go out and buy a candle for the Maiden Goddess -- and for yourself.
This week, light it and place it in a window of your home. Focus all your hopes and dreams for the coming year onto that candle. And dedicate it to hope.

Blessed be!

Goddess Andrasta  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Andrasta Image
HER NAME WAS "ANDRASTA" AND SHE WAS THE SOVEREIGN GODDESS OF THE "ICENI" TRIBE, A PROUD AND POWERFUL PEOPLE WHO ONCE LIVED IN BRITAIN. HER NAME LITERALLY MEANS "THE DARK ONE", AND THE ROOTS OF HER NAME GOES BACK TO THE CONCEPTS OF DARKNESS. SHE WAS ASSOCIATED WITH WAR AND BATTLE. IT IS SAID THAT HER PRESENCE WAS EVOKED ON THE EVE OF BATTLE. IT WAS SAID THAT" BOUDICCA", THE BRITISH WARRIOR QUEEN, PRAYED TO "ANDRASTA, "BEFORE GOING INTO BATTLE THE AGAINST HER ROMAN FOES, AND, IN FACT, IT IS BELIEVED THAT "BOUDICA "WAS A PRIESTESS OF THE GODDESS.

"ANDRASTA", AS A WARRIOR GODDESS, THE GODDESS OF VICTORY, OF RAVENS AND BATTLES, IS MOST LIKELY DERIVED FROM THE GREAT "QUEEN MORRIGAN", ONE OF THE TRIO OF OLD IRISH WAR/FERTILITY GODDESSES, WHO WAS KNOWN ALSO AS THE "QUEEN OF NIGHTMARES". HER MAIN CONCERN WAS WITH VICTORY, AND AS GODDESS OF DIVINATION, SHE WAS ALSO PROBABLY CALLED UPON TO DIVINE THE OUTCOME OF THE BATTLE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THIS GODDESS RECEIVED HUMAN SACRIFICES.

She was was venerated in woodland groves throughout Southern Britain and it has been said that there is a sacred grove dedicated to "Andrasta" hidden somewhere in "Epping Forest." Her symbol is the hare.

Gabija Goddess Of Fire And Hearth  

Posted by Stella Clark

Gabija Goddess Of Fire And Hearth Image
"GABIJA" is the Lithuanian Goddess of fire and hearth. She is the protector of home and family, the provider of happiness and fertility. She is also a Goddess of corn and other grains. and her cult has survived for thousands of years. She has been variously depicted as a cat, a stork, or a winged woman clothed in red. Her name means 'to cover, to protect' which refers to the practice of the mistress of the home as She vigilantly banks the fire at night so that it will neither go out...nor spread from the hearth. Her Sacred fire was believed to be the connection with the world of the ancestors who continued to live in the hearth flame.

Care was taken not to offend the Goddess, and Her fire was greatly respected and cared for as if it were a living creature.Fire had to be laid to bed could only be extinguished with cold, clean water, and while it was being lit, everyone had to be silent and not turn away....even if someone were to their name. People would feed the Goddess by offering bread and salt which was sprinkled on the fire to make it crackle while repeating the words, Sacred Gabija be satisfied." Sometimes a bowl of clean water would be left near the hearth so that the Goddess could wash Herself. This was done while repeating the words, "Bathe and rest, oh Fiery One."

It was said that, if angry, She would "go for a walk" burning down the house, and there is plenty if folklore that describes ill fate of those who offended Gabija by stomping their feet on, spitting on, or urinating on fire.

THE SACRED CULT OF GABIJA (THE FIRE GODDESS) WITH ITS PREHISTORIC ROOTS HAS SURVIVED TO OUR PRESENT DAY. THE HEARTH FIRE IS THE FOCUS OF ALL FAMILY RITUALS AND RITES OF PASSAGE WITH THE HEAD WOMAN OR A MALE ELDER PRESIDING. LITHUANIANS BEGIN EACH RITUAL INVOKING HER PRESENCE SINCE WITHOUT HER, THE RITES WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE. GABIJA ACCEPTS THE SACRIFICES AND ACTS AS A MEDIATOR, CARRYING THEIR PRAYERS TO THE OTHER GODS.GABIJA IS THE VITAL CENTER IF EACH TEMPLE, GROVE AND HOME. SHE IS THE FLAMING SYMBOL OF ALL THAT IS TRULY ALIVE ON THAT PLANET AND A DEITY AND POWER TO BE TREATED WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT.

AMENTET is the Egyptian Goddess of the west, which is where the underworld was said to be. The direction west has often been associated with death, since that is where the sun "dies" every day. Amentet sometimes took the form of a hawk who lived in a tree at the edge of the desert. From here, she could watch the gates of the underworld. When a newly deceased person came to the gates, she would welcome them with a drink of water. Her name is also seen as AMENTI (the hidden one) or IMENTET.

Oya Goddess Of The Wind Cover

Goddess of the Wind

Mo juba awo Oya!
Iwo ni Orisha Obinrin Afefe.
Iwo ni Oluwa Awo Iku.
Iwo ni Orisha Obinrin Efufulile.
Iwo ni Ologun Obinrin Julo Nase.
Iwo ni Emi Iye.

I humble myself before the mysteries of Oya!
You are the Goddess of the Wind.
You are the Owner of the Mysteries of Death.
You are the Goddess of the Tempest.
You are the Greatest Female Warrior.
You are the Breath of Life.

Orisa Oya is the invisible Orisha. In fact, Her face is said to be so terrible that none dare behold it. Oya’s presence the hurricane, tornado, the swaying of trees, the whistling of the atmosphere, the blowing of dust, the hurling of dirt. She is said to be as gentle as a breeze and as raging as a storm!

The Tempest


It is Orisha Oya who gives us our passport to life [breath] at birth, and requires its return at death. Oya is therefore, the watcher of the doorway between life and death. She is not death but the awareness of its existence. Orisa Oya is symbolic of things that are, felt more often than seen. In this sense she is associated with ‘covert’ activities and ‘secret’ operations.

Orisa Oya metaphysical principle is radical change creates abundance in this we we see her represents the destruction of old society making way for the new; and the power to completely destroy cities and fields, reverting them back to their original state.

She accomplishes this by sending cyclones, tornadoes, and hurricanes which destroy everything in their paths, forcing mankind to rebuild new cities and towns.

In my exprience with Orisa Oya I have found her lessons to be especially hard but powerful…she brings drama anything that needs reform…. fears and blockages Oya! will bring some kind of drastic experience to confront and remove the fear or you will continue to suffer in the state of your fear.

Living in the caribbean her gentle side are found in the tradewinds that grace our islands and her torrent is found in every hurricane that has rattled our homes…

I have also found the munificent mother to bring messages in her breeze and wisdoms of where to go and who you will see, next time listen when the winds blows and hear what messages our mother of the market may have for you!

Iba se Oya mo juba!

Goddess Of Light Yhi  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Of Light Yhi Image
"YHI "IS THE GODDESS OF LIGHT AND CREATOR GODDESS OF THE KARRAUR, AN AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL GROUP. IT IS SAID THAT IN THE BEGINNING, THE WORLD LAY ASLEEP IN THE DARKNESS; THERE WAS NO LIFE, NO WIND, NO SOUND. YHI LAY ASLEEP IN THE "DREAMTIME" UNTIL SHE WAS AWOKEN BY THE VOICE OF THE GREAT SPIRIT. SHE TOOK A DEEP BREATH AND OPENED HER EYES, SURROUNDED BY GLITTERING RADIANCE, FLOODING THE WORLD WITH LIGHT...AND THE EARTH BEGAN TO STIR. "YHI" WALKED THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH--NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST--AND EVERYWHERE SHE WALKED, LIFE SPRANG UP AROUND HER. AS SHE DID, PLANTS SPRANG UP FROM HER FOOTPRINTS....AND THEN THE GODDESS SAT TO REST ON THE TREELESS PLAIN...

...and, as She gazed about Her new creation, She realized that nothing was moving, so She ventured beneath the earth to face the evil spirits who were protesting Her light. They tried to subdue Her, but the undead forms had been waiting for Her, and they responded to Her caressing light, stirring with life deep within the cave. The glowing forms turned into butterflies, bees and a other insects that glittered; they flew and crept from the dark recesses of the Underworld until they swarmed around "Yhi "in a dancing mass...and as She retreated from the cave, they followed Her out into the world to commune with the waiting vegetation, and there was movement on the earth...

...BUT YHI KNEW THAT THERE WAS SO MUCH MORE THAT HAD TO BE DONE; SHE RETURNED TO THE ICY CAVES WITHIN THE MOUNTAINS AND ONCE AGAIN, BROUGHT HER LIGHT INTO THE DARK, COLD INTERIORS. HER WARMTH MELTED THE ICE WHICH, IN TURN, FLOWED FROM THE CAVE AND FORMED BODIES OF WATER...AND FROM THIS WATER,UNFORMED SHAPES WERE RELEASED FROM THEIR SLEEP AND BECAME THE FISH, SNAKES AND LIZARDS. THEY RUSHED INTO THE SUNLIGHT AND FOUND THEIR NEW HOMES IN THE LAKES AND GRASSES THAT WERE WAITING FOR THEM.

Yhi continued to enter cave after cave and from each rushed a torrent of birds and animals that joined the other creatures in the light. The world was dancing with life, and "Yhi" spoke, I shall return each day and bless you with the seasons; summer for regeneration and birth, and winter for cleansing and rest. And

SHE TURNED HERSELF INTO A GLOWING BALL OF LIGHT IN THE SKY, DISAPPEARING OVER THE HORIZON, AND AS SHE DISAPPEARED, DARKNESS FELL OVER THE EARTH. FEARING THE RETURN OF PERPETUAL DARKNESS, THERE WAS GREAT SORROW AND MOURNING UNTIL EVENTUALLY, THERE WAS SLEEP. AND AFTERWARD, ONE BY ONE, THE CREATURES OPENED THEIR EYES, AND, TO THEIR GREAT JOY, LIGHT BEAMED IN THE EAST AND FELL UPON THEIR WORLD ONCE AGAIN....THE FIRST DAWN. "GODDESS YHI" HAD RETURNED JUST AS SHE HAD PROMISED, AND THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT DAY WOULD ALWAYS FOLLOW THE NIGHT...

...AND LIKE THE SHAPELESS FIGURES IN THE CAVE WAITING FOR THE LIGHT, OUR SPIRIT RESIDES IN THE DARK RECESSES...SLEEPING, WAITING FOR ENLIGHTENMENT FOR BOTH DARKNESS AND LIGHT EXIST WITHIN AND WITHOUT. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CREATION TALES.

Goddess Of The Night  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Of The Night Image
Moon Goddess! wi' silver sandals
Descending the trellis of the stars
Unto the Earth's rim, that thou
Dost traverse the shadowed ways-
What is thy witchery?
Lo, methinks thou art a phantom weaver,
For the night is but the spirit of the day.
Aye, and nothing in her shadowed hours
Is real, nor openly announced.
Lo, moon Goddess! night descends,
That curtained mystery which would
Mislead man, making his heart
To quake in fear of oblivion-and thou,
Descending upon a merciful errand,
Dost bid the phantom go-
Causing the shadows to spring,
Peopling the earth with phantomry,
Mellowing man's heart till it becomes
As a harp strung with golden strings,
Waiting the touch of tomorrow,
That it give forth a softened melody.

Women now pine,
Wanting their lovers home
Sharing the wine.

Greek Naiad Alke Image
ALKE (pronounced AL-kee) is one of the Greek Naiades. The Naiades were generally thought to be daughters of an Okeanid mother (the 3000 daughters of Tethys and Okeanos, Goddesses of fresh water sources) and a Potamoi father (the 3000 sons of Tethys and Okeanos, Gods of the rivers); in Alke's case, her father was Saggarios, God of the River Saggarios in Phrygia. Naiades were particularly responsible for water that came up from the earth, such as springs, fountains, and wells. Alke's name, which means "strength," is also seen as ALCE.

Goddess Kupala  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Kupala Image
KUPALA (pronounced koo-PAH-lah) is the Slavic Goddess of water, herbs, and magic. Her festival takes place on the day of the summer solstice. Her worshippers bathed themselves in rivers and springs on this day to purify themselves. They also brought offerings of flowers, which they set adrift on the rivers. Another means of purification was jumping through bonfires built in Kupala's name. Her name means "to bathe" and was also sometimes seen as KUPALO. With the advent of Christianity, her festival was assimilated with another that purified through bathing, that of John the Baptist, known to the Slavs as Ivan Kupala.

Goddess Skadi Image
"SKADI" IS THE WINTER GODDESS OF SCANDINAVIA, OF THE FIERCE WINTER WINDS, THE SNOW, SNOWSHOES, AND HUNTING. SHE IS SYMBOLIC OF DEATH AND HARM, A GODDESS OF THE DARK CRUEL NORTH WHO RULES OVER THE COLD WINTER MONTHS AND AREAS OF THE WORLD WHICH ARE COVERED WITH SNOW AND ICE. SHE BESTOWS JUSTICE AND VENGEANCE ON THE WICKED. SHE IS A BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL GIANTESS, THE DAUGHTER OF "THJAZI". SNOW COVERED MOUNTAINS ARE HER HOME. HER SACRED ANIMALS WERE THE SERPENT AND THE WOLF.

AFTER HER FATHER WAS KILLED BY "THOR" AND "LOKI", SKADI "CAME TO THE GATES OF "ASGARD" AND CHALLENGED THE GODS. "ODIN" OFFERED A COMPROMISE AND REQUESTED THAT SHE FORGET ABOUT HER REVENGE. SHE AGREED TO DO SO ONLY IF ONE OF THE GODS COULD MAKE HER LAUGH AND THAT SHE WOULD BE FREE TO CHOOSE A HUSBAND. AS THE STORY GOES," LOKI "APPEARED TO HER AS A GOAT AND DANCED AND THIS MADE HER LAUGH.

THEY BLINDFOLDED SO THAT SHE COULD SEE ONLY THE FEET OF THE GODS STANDING IN A CIRCLE AROUND HER, SHE CHOSE HER HUSBAND BY SEARCHING THE ONE WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FEET. HER GAZE FELL UPON A PAIR OF BEAUTIFULLY FORMED FEET, AND SHE WAS SURE THEY MUST BELONG TO THE GOD OF LIGHT, "BALDER", WHO WAS THE GOD THAT SHE HAD WANTED. HOWEVER, WHEN THE BLINDFOLD WAS REMOVED, SHE FOUND THAT SHE HAD INSTEAD CHOSEN "NJORD", THE GOD OF NAVIGATION.

DESPITE HER DISAPPOINTMENT, SHE SPENT A HAPPY HONEYMOON ON "ASGARD", BUT BOTH KNEW THE MARRIAGE WOULD NEVER WORK. HE LOVED THE SEA AND SHE WAS A CREATURE OF THE MOUNTAINS; THEREFORE, THEY AGREED TO STAY AT THE HOMES OF EACH OTHER EVERY NINE DAYS, AND FOR SOME TIME, "NJORD" (THE PERSONIFICATION OF SUMMER) AND "SKADI" (THE PERSONIFICATION OF WINTER) ALTERNATED THUS, BUT EVENTUALLY THE PAIR DECIDED IT WAS NEVER GOING TO WORK SO THEY PARTED FOREVER AND RETURNED TO THEIR RESPECTIVE HOMES.

THE LEGEND OF SKADI


Through the leaves of the Edda there rustles a tale
Of Skadi, the daughter of torrent and gale.
Who, leaving her snow-summits, breezy and free,
Went down to be wedded to Njord of the sea. Though bright was the ocean as now, in the day When Vanir held nature in sway,
Of gods though her bridegroom was reckoned the third,
In Skadi's new mansion a murmur was heard.
"O Njord, I am homesick! the gull's tiresome note,
The moan of the breakers, the tide's endless rote,
They hold my eyes sleepless; I never can stay
By the wide-staring ocean. Come, let us away! "Away to my mountains, my home in the height, To the glens and the gorges, the summits of light!"
And Njord could but listen and go with his bride;
But there for his sea-haunts he drearily sighed.
"O Skadi, come back to the warm, sunny surf!
The beach-sand is smoother than frost-bitten turf;
I like not, at midnight, the wolf's hungry howl,
The bear's stealthy footstep, the shriek of the owl. "Nine sunsets, my Skadi, from sole love of thee, I will give to the mountains, if only for three
With me thou wilt linger the blue wave beside;
The billows shall lull thee, my wild one, my bride!
"
"THEN DOWN THE STEEP GORGES WENT SKADI AND NJORD; "
"LIKE WIND THROUGH THE PINE-WOODS THEY SWEPT TO THE FIORD! "
"AND BACK IN THREE MORNINGS THEY HURRIED AGAIN, "
"BEARING UP TO THE HILL-TOPS THE SIGH OF THE MAIN. "SO HITHER AND THITHER AWHILE SWAYED THE PAIR: "
"BUT NJORD SICKENED SOON OF THE FRESH INLAND AIR; "
"AND ONCE, AS HE SCENTED AFAR THE SALT SEA, "
"NO MORE OF THE MOUNTAINS," HE SHOUTED, "FOR ME!
"I AM NINE TIMES TOO WEARY OF CAVERN AND CLIFF! "
"ALL THE PINE-GROVES OF NORWAY I'D GIVE FOR MY SKIFF. "
"THE TWILIGHT, THAT BURIES THE WHITE, SOLEMN HILLS, "
"MY BLOOD, LIKE THE COMING OF RAGNAROK CHILLS. THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS ARE TOO MANY FOR ME "
"TO WASTE ON THE OCEAN, O DULL NJORD, AND THEE!
"AND SKADI HAS BUCKLED HER SNOW-SANDALS ON, "
"AND BACK TO HER MOUNTAINS ALONE SHE HAS GONE. "
"THE RED, CLIMBING SUNRISE, THE ROSY-FRINGED MIST, "
"STEALING UP FROM THE VALLEY, HER CLEAR CHEEK HAVE KISSED; "
"AND OVER THE HILL-TOPS THE FROSTY BLUE SKY "
"WITH THE JOY OF ITS WELCOME REKINDLES HER EYE. "SHE TIGHTENS HER BOWSTRING, SHE BOUNDS FROM THE ROCK; "
"THE ELVES IN THEIR CAVERNS HER MERRY VOICE MOCK; "
"THE WATERFALL'S RUSH TO THE TARN BY THE CRAG, "
"AND THE LEAP OF THE REINDEER, BEHIND HER BOTH LAG. "
"BUT STILL, AS SHE CHASES THE WOLF AND THE BOAR, "
"BY SOUNDS SHE IS STARTLED LIKE SURF ON THE SHORE, "
"THAT SURGE THROUGH THE FOREST, AND WHISPER, AND RAVE; "
"'TIS NJORD, WHO IS CALLING HER BACK TO THE WAVE. "AND NJORD HEARS A HILL-NOTE BORNE IN ON THE TIDE. "
"WHEN SOFT THROUGH THE SUNSET THE LAZY WAVES GLIDE. "
"OR TRANCED IN THE MOONLIGHT THE WEIRD WATER SHINES; "
"TIS SKADI, WHOSE SINGING FLOATS DOWN FROM HER PINES. "
He calls, but she leaves not her rock-ranges free;
"SHE CHANTS FROM HER WOODLANDS, HE STAYS BY THE SEA: "
"A WAIL THRILLS THE HARP-STRINGS OF HEART LOST TO HEART, "
"NEITHER HAPPY TOGETHER, NOR JOYOUS APART. "OF SEA-GOD AND HILL-MAID REMAINS NOT A SIGN, "

SAVE THE MARRIAGE OF MUSIC IN BILLOW AND PINE:


"STILL SOUND THE NORSE MOUNTAINS, THE TIDE IN THE FIORD",
"WITH THE SINGING OF SKADI, THE ECHO OF NJORD. "

Dedun  

Posted by Stella Clark

Dedun Cover
Dedun (or Dedwen) was a Nubian god worshipped during ancient times in that part of Africa and attested as early as 2400 BC. There is much uncertainty about his original nature, especially since he was depicted as a lion, a role which usually was assigned to the son of another deity. Nothing is known of the earlier Nubian mythology from which this deity arose, however. The earliest known information in Egyptian writings about Dedun indicates that he already had become a god of incense by the time of the writings. Since at this historical point, incense was an extremely expensive luxury commodity and Nubia was the source of much of it, he was quite an important deity. The wealth that the trade in incense delivered to Nubia led to his being identified by them as the god of prosperity, and of wealth in particular. He is said to have been associated with a fire that threatened to destroy the other deities, however, leading many Nubiologists to speculate that there may have been a great fire at a shared complex of temples to different deities, that started in a temple of Dedun, although there are no candidate events known for this. Although mentioned in the pyramid texts of Ancient Egypt as being a Nubian deity, there is no evidence that Dedun was worshipped by the Egyptians, nor that he was worshipped in any location north of Swenet (contemporary Aswan), which was considered the most southerly city of Ancient Egypt. Nevertheless, in the Middle Kingdom of Egypt, during the Egyptian rule over Kush, Dedun was said by the Egyptians to be the protector of deceased Nubian rulers and their god of incense, thereby associated with funerary rites.
