Gna : Great Messenger Goddess
Great Gna, our beautiful errand Goddess,
Your messages held tight there in your bodice.
You ride on a horse that takes to flight,
Carrying urgent tidings, Frigga does write.
Once a Vanir who saw her up in the air,
Asked in verse, " What is flying over there ? "
Gna answered, " I travel and move through the sky."
"But you are mistaken, I do not fly. "
Hamskerpir and Gardofa sired this foal,
To run over the sea and air is it's role.
It's name is Hofvarpnir, a horse of delight,
It means Hoof - Thrower, it's name is just right.
Gna is listed fourteenth and last on Snorri's list.
This ranking of Goddesses shouldn' t exist.
You are not a " minor Goddess ", no not at all,
But a wonderful Goddess who's image stands tall !
