Nine Nights

Odin’s Initiation

Artist:  Adam Scott Miller http://adamscottmiller.com/

“I know that I hung on a windy tree,

nine long nights,

wounded with a spear,

dedicated to Odin,

Myself to Myself,

On that Tree of which no man knows

from where its roots run.”

From the Havamal: The Sayings of the High Ones.  The Poetic Edda
