Council Of Twelve
Twelve of the Mightiest Gods under the third root meet,
On horses named Sleipnir, Glad, Gyllir, Glen, and Skeidbrimir they ride,
With Sinir, Gils, Silfrtopp, Falhofni, Gulltopp, and Lettfet, by their side.
Thor, however, will not mount, he prefers to proudly walk instead,
Through the rivers Kormt and Ormt, and both Kerlauger's it is said.
Next to the Spring of Urd is where they hold their holy court,
The reason is the doom of men through which they must sort.
By the sacred spring, so ancient, where the waters seem to glow,
They decide which to curse, and on who their blessings to bestow.
Some will bask in the God' s glory for an eternity of time,
While others walk the terrible road, on their way to Helheim.
