For 9 Long Nights & 9 Long Days, I Lived & Died in a Thousand Ways

For those of you who have met me face to face at a gathering, you may have heard me sing a chorus from this original song I composed. I realized, I've never shared the entire poem/song, so here it is. The unique thing about this poem, is everytime I sing it it changes on me. :)



Nine long nights,
& nine long days
I hung on a gallows
In a windswept tree
My blood dripped down
Into the ground
Feeding,
- the Great World Tree.

For nine long nights,
& nine long days
I lived and died
- In a thousand ways.
I laughed and cried.
In pain I writhed
My tears and blood
Fell like rain.

For nine long nights,
& nine longs days
The tree became
- Both womb and grave.
Runes I learned
- And runes I gave

I give to you, my last advice:
All great things
- come with a price
So you must learn
To sacrifice.

Nine long nights,
& nine long days
The tree became
- Both womb and grave.
Runes I learned
- And runes I gave
I lived in died
in a thousand ways.
