260. A Farmer's Oath
Which have risen healthy and tall, thanks to Freyr's timely rain,
I offer of myself, a few drops of blood, flowing here where I stand,
To honor and bless Sif's golden wheat that grows here on my land.
When the seasons change, and just before the fall harvest will begin,
I bless with my sacred hammer, the golden wheat as it comes in,
As the grain is piled up, and we are grateful for what we have in our store,
I will then consecrate its holding place, with the hammer of Mighty Thor.
And on this day, and before this altar, I proudly take this sacred oath,
To the golden haired Goddess of the harvest, and of summer growth,
That to my neighbors, on a daily basis, I promise that I will share,
The great abundance I can offer, in an amount that shows I care.
