A Song for Thor
Post # 1
As you all can tell, I have a passion for the written arts. I am also very proud of my religion and of my gods. I have found many songs and poems for other gods, however songs displaying the glory of Thor are scarce and far between. So I have written my own, with inspiration from the YouTube personality Alchemical Poetry. Hail Thor!

"A Song for Thor" by Heidenwulfor.
Sung to the tune of "A Song for Odin" by Alchemical Poetry

A song I forge for Odin's son
The God of iron storm
I sing your praise, oh great Red Thor
Your friendship keeps us warm.

You ride your chariot through the sky
For Bifrost can't hold your might
The thunder rolls, the lightning strikes
Filling the heavens with light.

You are protector of us man,
The boisterous Midgard friend.
When tightening your grip on Mjolnir
A message to evil you send,

"To those who wish to cause them harm,
With an evil, frosted knife,
Just know that I am standing guard,
With strength I will end your life."

And when the day of days goes by
The fore sought Ragnarok,
Jormungandr's jaws, forever shut
Your fate, oh Thor, is locked.

For you'll destroy the Earthly wyrm,
Be slain by serpent's tongue,
Your life be taken from this world
Your soul forever lives on.

Gimli be built, the Hall of Gold
From the ruins of Yggdrasil
The Hammer of War, your sons will take
They'll sing of your strength and skill.

Your songs and tales they shall live on,
Long after your death
Empowering fighters forevermore
Your name, it fills their breath.

Your song seems to come from Wiccan origin, which means I can't help you very much. My knowledge on Wicca is very limited and most of what I already know you were able to decipher in the lyrics. "The broom in hand, wand and all" lyric is more than likely very literal, just a reference to the stereotypical tools and items associated with witchcraft. "The father horn and mother moon" is a reference to the main Wiccan Deities, The Horned God and The Mother Goddess. "Her beauty shining brilliant and tall" is just a poetic description of nature, seeing as though it was just talked about in the stanza before it. "words of wisdom, power, maul." Is a description of the warning, saying that the warning they should heed are words of wisdom, power, and maul. The demons more than likely do not mean actual demons, but more the metaphorical demons, burdens and shames people carry with them everyday. Putting it into this sense, it is a warning to tell all witches that these personal demons can tear apart their covens and their practice, straying them down a more negative path. "I urge all witches to take flight." Is a solution to this, more than likely saying to flee or never enter covens that have these personal demons in them, for they will destroy practice and are therefore not true covens in the eyes of nature and the God and Goddess. That is just what I interpreted this message to be.

When finding meaning in poetry or music, you have to be able to find what is metaphorical and poetic, and what can be taken literally, because great poetry and great tales are told through a combination of poetry and prose. Not everything is used in metaphorical senses, nor is everything literal, one must be able to separate the two to create the images and decipher the meanings.
