Sword and Throne (The Ballad of Freyr)

from by Hrungnir

lyrics

The son of Njord gazes upon the nine worlds from the Allfather's throne. Far into Jotunheim peers the lord Vanir, to the home of Gymir. From the doors of the great house emerges a woman, brightness gleamed from her hands and over sky and sea. All of the worlds seemed illuminated by her. Never before had he been so immersed in passion and longing. So strong was his longing that he gave up his most prized sword, so that Skirnir may travel under cover of darkness to propose for him the maiden's hand in marriage. The price of the sword lost upon the Allfather's throne will be truly known only when the sons of Muspelheim ascend upon Asgard.
