Audhumbla

Audhumbla

Audhumbla

 

From Primeval ice

Dripped forth the cow

 

From Ginn-un-ga-gap

The yawning void became

A place for northern realms

 

She Emerged from Niflheim,

And through it’s fogs and misted signs,

A heaviness came to greet

these masses of ice and rime

 

Audhumbla X 4

 

Stirring dance upon eternal cold

Frigid steps now addressed,

by Muspell’s flaming throe,

pushing-pulling ice to fire

Birthing forth cosmogonic flow

 

Audhumblah

Audhumblah

 

the first giant known of frost

came to you as life seemed lost

staving off starvation, Ymir fed,

on that which you shed

from suckled teat, forming the

basis for future Norse beliefs

 

Audhumbla x2

 

Through your thawing tongue

Bori’s salted tomb’s undone

Breeding the origin to the tale

Of how Asgard first was seen,

A story, which without, these

Nordic myths would never have been

 

Audhumbla X 4

I'm a poet and aspiring screenwriter/songwriter with a passion for film, art, photography, philosophy and heavy metal. I love reading, mainly non-fiction, comic books, graphic novels, myth and reference. Family always comes first for me. I'm a proud father to two wonderful pups and two curious cats. I'm also a glutton for punishment aka the life of being a diehard Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan.

  1. I had not heard this Norse myth, you do it justice and the recording is so well executed. I also didn’t realize the connection between Audhumbla and Kamadhenu, and the theory that they share a common Proto-Indo-European origin. Supercool, your prodigious output astounds me.
