It will soon be here: my other book of poetry (with prose!), and most of its content has never appeared on my blog or anywhere else. Now available for preorder in hardcover only. The official publication date is April 30, 2019.
This is a book for initiates, magicians, occultists, esotericists, sages, heathen prophets, and other travelers of the hidden realms, one that will not be understood by others.
To find it, either this Amazon link or this Barnes & Noble link will take you to the casewrap hardcover edition. If you’re outside of the United States, your Amazon country-site of choice probably has it listed already.
For further details, including a brief table of contents, see my Press / Books page.
It’s finally here: my first book of poetry, with many poems never seen before on this blog. Now available in paperback, hardcover, and digital formats. What’s more, there’s also a companion album of audio recordings of many of the poems from the book!
Here’s the short version of where to find it.
This Amazon link will take you to the paperback, along with the casewrap hardcover and kindle editions.
It’s almost here: my first book of poetry, with many poems never seen before on this blog. I’ll make further posts when the various formats become available for purchase. The rollout should be complete by the end of July.
“Hof” is my room: a heathen temple
to higher learning, where a horn is raised
to the elder gods of the Medieval North.
Repeating paradigms, I practice Old Norse,
and runes are written for raising consciousness.
The tales of knights by Chrétien I read,
and grails are sought for gain in my soul.
Of a Corpus of Lit, I acquire knowledge,
and mead is made for many to enjoy.
I’ve posted a call to Thor previously on this blog, but like all the other ritual calls, it was two stanzas of ljóðaháttr. (See the Minor Poems list for the rest of the calls I’ve posted so far.) Since there is a lot of surviving lore about Thor, a longer call is possible. So today I present a seven stanza ljóðaháttr call to Thor. Like much of my poetry on my blog, it will be included in my upcoming book. It is titled “Call to Thor.”
Asgard’s chosen champion,
we boast of your might
and bounty of main
in the call we declare today.
