Of questions ask and answers see-
Nine days and nights sing skaldic scribes
Of this and many other lives-
Praise not the day till it is ended
Praise not the sword till battle blended
Praise not the path till it is wended
Praise not the way, but apprehend it!
As cattle, fish and fowl do die
Each mortal life is measured-
Yet strange new lands before us lie
We chase with hearts uplifted-
Hear the spirit song of Ulfr Sigurdsson
In Odin’s Raven’s caw…
With wit and wisdom his longships leaped
Through battles, storms and more…
Yet even Vanir of Vanaheimr
Cannot keep men’s fate at bay-
And so it came one grimstone night
And Ulfr fell away…
As choirs call and fires roared
The rainbow bridge did open-
Bifrost bit and blazing lit
And Ulfr dreaming – woken
Now Midgrad falls and Nine worlds fall
As Yggdrassil is spinning!
Past Valhalah and Folkvangar
A new world here did win him-
And stepping out with mighty shout
Ulfr Sigurdsson set about him-
Traversing time and inner space
A spiritual transition mounting
Galactic tides neath cosmic skies
The Helmsman now arisen
Northwind has blown beyond self home
And courage follow vision
Beyond the stars in longships far
Above the heavens highness
Across Oceans vast and deep and fast
The voyage is inside us..
Cross Fjords of Space a Cosmic race
Earth energy is learning
Light years of time within sublime
The spirit song returning…
& Inspired by the Havamal, The Wisdom of the North
or The Sayings Of The High One
in the Poetic Edda,
Ulfr has been a worthy Captain of many a Longship in his time,
The average length of a Longship was 21 metres,
the longest ever was 70 metres,
and could hold 30 oarsmen…
and killed Ulfr.
he finds the Rainbow Bridge within himself.
where he meets the goddess Freyja
who guides him onwards.
Ulfr notices that his spirit self is transforming further,
When Odin hung on the World Tree in search of knowledge that is unknowable to the living, he peered into the depths beyond the dead, into the void of nothingness called Ginnungagap (‘beguiling void’) that existed before all else in the Norse Universe.
Here he discovered the secret of the Runes, the letter-characters that were used throughout the entire world that was inhabited (or even visited) by the migrating Germanic tribes including Sweden, Iceland, England, and even Constantinople.
He also saw into the future, past the great battle of the End of Times called Ragnarok and beyond this into the new World that would emerge and exist after this, although it would not include himself
nor most of his kin.
In Norse mythology, the Vanir (singular Vanr) are a group of gods associated with fertility, wisdom and the ability to see the future.
The Vanir are one of two groups of gods (the other being the Aesir) and are the namesake of the location Vanaheimr (‘Home of the Vanir’).
After the Aesir–Vanir War, the Vanir became a subgroup of the Aesir. Subsequently, members of the Vanir are sometimes also referred to as members of the Aesir.
The Vanir are attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources; the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, both written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson; and in the poetry of skalds.
Loki is a shape shifter and in separate incidents he appears in the form of a salmon, mare, seal, a fly, and possibly an elderly woman. Loki’srelations with the gods end with his role in engineering the death of the god Baldr. Loki is eventually bound by the gods and banished.
The Rainbow Bridge;
In my version however, this Rainbow Bridge is an analogy for a sacred, spiritual pathway to the inner realms beyond life and death…
Freyja is a goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, gold, war, and death. Freyja rules over her heavenly afterlife field Fólkvangr and there receives half of those that die in battle, whereas the other half go to the god Odin’s hall, Valhalla.
Crum formed Moonloonies in 1991 out of the remaining ashes of Shockhead. Shockhead combined psychedelic sounds and the the driving beat, distortion and heavy bass of Hawkwind with a dub style and a dread-locked Rasta lead singer.
Crum also co-wrote the ‘AGENTS OF CHAOS’ with DAVE BROCK
( HAWKWIND Captain )
& played Keyboards on Hawkwind British & European tours.
Two subsequent live albums were recorded
‘In your area’ and’ Live’.
Moonloonies are currently working on their 8th CD.
