The Thunder God, born from Mother Earth.
All - Mother Frigga birthed their favorite son,
And in a flash came Balder, the shining one.
Freyja bathes her children in magical waters,
Hnoss and Gersemi are her treasured daughters.
Ran gave birth to nine in a deep ocean cave,
Named each of her daughters after a wave.
Odin one day blew in from a northern wind,
Gave the child Vali to the Goddess named Rind.
Sif blessed Mighty Thor, with his only girl child,
Thrudr, their great joy, is as strong as she is wild.
Nanna brought to Asgard a child without any flaws,
Their son Forseti dispenses justice, rules by the laws.
Njord and Skadhi, whose relationship is quite tragic,
Bore the Vanir children, Freyja and Freyr, with magic.
Mothers of the Gods, with Children so divine,
Weaved by the Norns, and foretold by a sign.
Delivered into nine worlds, blessed from beyond,
Born to sacred mothers, connected by maternal bond.
