239. Odin's Comrades
Great Odin watches the nine worlds from up on his high seat.
His far reaching eye sees deep within the Dwarves' caves,
He can even see the serpent as it lies under the waves.
The ravens Hugin and Munin journey everyday to the Earth,
There they witness every death, and experience every birth.
Odin sends out his memory and thought to hover in the sky,
He is told of every conflict, and of course hears of every lie.
Freki and Geri stand by Odin' s side, protectors of their Lord,
They are his constant companions, their teeth his flashing sword.
If you approach Odin, you will come under their watchful glare,
And if you venture too close, their sharp teeth they will bare.
All - father Odin has another comrade, this one is quite a force,
Immensely strong and with eight legs, Sleipnir is his mighty horse.
Sleipnir is the fastest mount, always keeps his master in the lead
Great Odin rode it all the way to Hel, it truly is the best of breed.
