Devotional to Freya

Freya, my Lady fire, shine
Let the heart where I confine
Your kissing tongues that rise and fall
Be the heart that warms us all

When the snow assaults my doors
Every pinion’s weak but yours
When I fall at least to sleep
Let your bright dominion keep
Our heart and soul afire

Lady of the bright desire
Protect my soul should I it break
And keep me warm ’til dawn’s dark break.

—Cara Freyasdaughter (based on Nancy Williards’ “In Praise of Fire”)
