One thing that does bother me a little is that some tend to judge religious poetry a little too critically. Do these critics really think that we are all gifted poets who get every line just right ? The gift of a poem is a very personal offering between the creator of the poem, and the recipient of it. Do the Gods expect us to be Longfellow, Poe, or Rumi ? Of course not ! They know who we are, what we are capable of, and the amount of effort that we put into our poem - offerings. I feel that they accept it for what it is. Simply our way of honoring them, at our level of ability. I equate it to a five year old child who draws a picture for his mom or dad. It may not be drawn very well, but the proud parents gladly stick it on the refrigerator for all to see. ( And probably brag about it ).
Even if you have never written a religious poem, or song, give it a try ! Put some real thought into it, and a lot of your true feelings. Let the words glide off of your pen, or keyboard, to honor those that you wish to give thanks to. If it doesn't work quite right the first time, keeping changing it until it sounds the way you want it to. And if someone makes fun of your work, remind them that it is not meant for them, it is a gift for others. To express your love for those in our religion, in poetic words, can be, and is very beautiful !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
