380. The Perfect God
In the distance we see his light, feel his glory,
For us he stands for all that is kind and good,
His purity is like poetry, honor is his life's story,
His words are untainted, speaks no falsehood.
Even among the Gods he is considered to be best,
A level of perfection to which we all should strive,
To become more like Balder is the ultimate quest,
A goal at which we can unfortunately never arrive.
He is the representation of all that is good and right,
Nothing in all of the distant nine worlds is his match,
We are humbled by his supremacy, bow at his sight,
Hope to stay in his good graces, his attention to catch.
All who know his great glory, through ritual honor him,
Speak their high praise with every raise of their horn,
Nothing can ever make the pure light of Balder dim,
For he is the most perfect of the Gods ever to be born !
