In the land known as Noatun, down by an inlet bay,
Living next to the shelter and calmness of water,
Can be found the God Njord, the father of Frey,
Freyja is his kin also, such a beautiful daughter.
Njord belongs to the older Vanir, known for their great magic,
Who sent an emissary of peace to the great hall of Odin,
Gullveig was burned thrice, the violent act was most tragic,
It started the great War of the Gods that neither could win.
Exchanged after the war, he lived in the Aesir' s golden land,
Where he was treated as a guest, with great honor and regard.
Though he longed for calm seas, and a shore's white sand,
Njord, the God of tranquility, made the best of his stay in Asgard.
Njord was chosen by Skadhi for the great beauty of his feet,
He loved the shoreline, but she needed mountains to be free,
Not compatible at all, never did a stranger couple meet,
Njord hated Thrymheim, and Skadhi would not live by the sea.
So the couple live apart, and yet are married as one,
The Goddess in the mountains, and the God by the ocean.
They have a magical daughter, and a wonderful son,
Separate, but together, they maintain a distant devotion.
