351. Odin' s Eyes
A black shadow silhouetted against the bright blue skies,
Riding invisible thermals over Midgard the dark raven flies.
It serves a lone master, the Asgardian who is most wise,
As Hugin hovers far above, it becomes Great Odin' s eyes.
Sitting on a branch, partially hidden behind the leaves of a tree,
Patiently sits waiting the great raven, noting everything it can see.
Munin honors its Lord, and dutifully follows great Odin' s decree,
Watches everything below, waiting until the last moment to flee.
When the morning approaches, and they hear Valfather' s call,
They take to their wings, and head for Valhalla' s golden hall.
Over the burning Rainbow Bridge, and past the great fortress wall,
Hugin and Munin fly onto Odin's shoulders, and tell their master all !
