And stepson of the Mighty Thor,
You search for game from mountain cliff,
And through thickest forest floor.
Ullr, great warrior, God of the Shield,
Hunting on hilltops mounted on skis.
In Your hands a great bow you wield.
Arrows You shoot with practised ease.
God of hunters, and archer supreme,
Elk, boar, and deer are your game.
Shooting from skis, or in mid - stream,
Ullr Your skills have won You fair fame.
Ullr we invoke you for help in a duel,
And take a warrior's oath on your ring.
From Your hall in Ydalir You rule.
Here in Midgard Your praise we sing !

This poem and the one for Skadhi that I wrote just a few days ago were written for them in honor of The Feast of the Hunters that will be coming up in a few days. I have a close connection to both of these Gods, especially Skadhi, and I am honored by their presence at my rituals . Hail Great Ullr ! Hail Great Skadhi ! Hunter - Gods with no equals !
Next article : Feast of the Hunters.
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
